Tis the season to be jolly and here at National Museums Liverpool we have a whole host of festive activities that’ll appeal to everyone.
Santa is back at the Museum of Liverpool. The giant Blacklers Santa is on display in the Atrium for all visitors to see. Once you’ve seen Santa and told him your Christmas list for this year, head up and see the Education team who are showing how Christmas was celebrated over 1,000 years ago. Find out some of the ancient and interesting roots of many Christmas traditions.
Over on the Wirral at the Lady Lever Art Gallery we have a wonderful exhibition celebrating a unique, artistic partnership between illustrator Quentin Blake and children’s author John Yeoman, this exhibition will showcase more than 40 Quentin Blake works, including the beautiful illustrations featured in Yeoman’s magical storybooks.
If you’re in the city centre and would like some stories, the Walker Art Gallery have them. Once upon a time… In a magical place called Big Art, tales of wondrous lands, enchanted kingdoms and mythical characters can be found. Come along for fairy tales, traditional stories and family favourites.
Many Christmas traditions as we know them today were invented by the Victorians. Join the staff at Sudley House for an afternoon of Victorian themed Christmas crafts (15 December) and activities, including making your own Victorian Christmas card to take away or send to a loved one.

Wouldn’t it be great if more older people could get involved in arts and culture as a means to leading happier, more fulfilled lives? In 2014, we created a network called HOP, which does just that.
HOP actually stands for Happy Older People, and it does exactly what it says on the tin! Joining forces with LightNight organisers Open Culture, we’ve produced and developed a network of organisations with the aim of finding new ways of working together to engage local older people in arts and culture.
We want to encourage other local organisations across the Liverpool City Region to apply for a new wave of funding we have available, to help older people feel less isolated through the enjoyment of arts and culture, meeting new people and learning new skills. Read more…
