Exhibitions at Summerlee Museum

21 November 2020 – 17 January 2021

Last Christmas 

Join us in a glimpse back in time as girls waited excitedly for a visit from Santa Claus, with our Pierrot Clown, Holly Hobbie, Patch and lots more themed bedrooms from the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. All generations can submerge themselves in hundreds of iconic objects that have defined British girlhood in the recent past.

Read our interview with exhibit director Wendy Hesketh here.

The exhibit is free but you must book a ticket in advance.
