History Wardrobe presents 'A Wartime Christmas'

Join History Wardrobe for the gentle enjoyment of a 1940s event with fabulous vintage fashions

Christmas during wartime shines a light on companionship, connections and making a little go a long way.

In A Wartime Christmas we invite you to discover the delights of simple pleasures - warm clothes, home-made gifts & decorations and recipes for delicious food (despite shortages).

Find out what to wear to dazzle by candlelight, how to sweeten the Christmas pudding, and what treats might be in your Christmas stocking.
