The reindeerChristmas lights have gone up around the village, we are making preparations for Christmas Shopping Evenings and the Christmas decorations are up in the museum. The yuletide season is fast approaching.WP_20161115_12_36_13_Pro.jpg

In the shop are some lovely Ashmolean Christmas Cards with historic images, Christmas tree ornaments, and lots of things that would make terrific gifts for your loved ones.  We will be open for Broadway’s Late Night Christmas Shopping on Friday 25th November and 2nd December, so come along and see us between 5.30 and 8.30 and enjoy some of the other lovely festival fun around the village.

The Christmas decorations adorning our own Christmas tree in the Introduction Room, are also available in the shop. So visitors can feel a little festive as they are welcomed to the museum by volunteers with the introductory talk, and then purchase one of our cute wooden reindeer decorations as a souvenir.

With the dark evenings drawing in our opening hours have changed, so through the winter we are now closing at 4pm with last admissions at 3.30pm, so come along early to avoid disappointment.

If you are at a loose end why not pop along and check out what’s it in our shop, or join us for late night shopping, and take a last peek around the museum before we close the public from 21st December.
