A Time of Reflection, True’s Yard’s Christmas Exhibition @ True's Yard
Nov 24 @ 11:00 am – Dec 22 @ 12:00 pm

A Time of Reflection

Christmas Exhibition at True’s Yard

 

The centrepiece of the ‘A Time of Reflection’ exhibition is a commemorative Christmas Tree, which visitors can add memories & messages to loved ones on. Tea lights for the glass globes can also be bought to light a candle in remembrance of relatives.

There are also archive pictures from Christmases’ past, memories from the sound archive, fun facts decorated by our volunteers, and objects.

 Although Christmas Day would have been very different for the fisherfolk to our modern standards, the fundamental element of family and tradition remains. Presents, if there were any, would be practical. While today children may dream of toys and sweets in their stocking, a new pair of boots would be the greatest gift as many North End children had to walk barefoot in the snow to school. 

The exhibition at the North Street museum opens Friday 24nd November at noon, and will run until midday on December 22nd.
