Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ will be the theme of the festivities planned for Saturday 1st December at the museum. The ‘Long Shop’ building itself, so called because it is believed to house the world’s first production line, will be the venue for the show ‘Deck the halls!’, to start at 6pm. Featuring a reading of A Christmas Carol by members of the Colchester Arts Institute, the New Song Community Choir will also be performing traditional songs and carols to accompany this classic Victorian tale. Booking prices are £12.50 adult, £7.50 children, and the price will include warming seasonal refreshments! Please call the museum on 01728 832189 to reserve your ticket.
