A Regency Christmas in Wales

  • Saturday 3 December 2022
  • 11am to 3pm

Join us as we celebrate a Regency Christmas in Wales here at the Botanic Garden. Discover how residents of the Middleton Estate would have celebrated Christmas 200 hundred years ago.

Find out about the Regency period with music and heritage food on display as well as traditional games.

There will be dancing inspired by the Regency period at 12:00 noon and 2pm. Come and join us and don’t forget your dancing shoes!

A talented group of volunteers from the Heritage Costume Group, will be available chat to you about their costumes and volunteering at the Botanic Garden.

Get creative and come and create your very own Calennig, a traditional custom made with an apple and skewered with cloves which would have been used in Wales as a way of celebrating the new year. There will also be the opportunity to make your own fan!

A Regency Christmas will be in Theatr Botanica from 11am-3pm
