Christmas Fairytales

Enjoy an evening of Victorian Christmas storytelling with Charles Dickens Scholar, Lawrence Hicks, as we explore many of the lesser known fairytales by the author of the beloved classic, “A Christmas Carol”. Let us treat you to spiced hot cocoa and holiday cookies as you enjoy a costumed performance and ambient sounds of the season. Later in the evening, with our Duckett Gallery and its current exhibit “Magic Lanterns • Ghost Stories and Fairytales” as a backdrop, you’ll be transported back in time for a uniquely Victorian Era form of entertainment as we light our Circa 1880 children’s toy magic lantern and project fantastically colored scenes on transparent plates, and they’ll all be accompanied by original Christmas Fairytales told by a live storyteller.
