A MUSEUM will be decking its halls this weekend for a steampunk Christmas celebration.

Langford’s Museum of Power is hosting its Christmas ‘Frozen in Time’ event on Sunday.

The day will see the wonders of historical engineering meet science fiction for a Christmas spectacular.

Museum manager Debbie Thomas said: “For seasonal entertainment and jollity on the day, visitors can enjoy partaking in many activities.

“They can become our champion at the tea duelling and parasol duelling competitions, watch the fabulous Soluna dancers, Christmas Burlesque Ladies and Hells Bells morris dancers.

“In the main hall, there will be a quartet playing some lovely Christmas tunes for us, Magic the Dragon will be walking around the crowds and our magicians will be adding magic for everyone.

“Santa and Mummy Christmas will be in the grotto and providing gifts to children to help them look forward to the big day.”

The magical model village Astaria will be open along with the magnificent steam pumping engine, Marshall.

Other large and miniature engines and the museum’s Time Train will travel around the grounds to help guests solve clues for a special Christmas hunt.

The Steam Pump Tea Rooms will be selling hot chestnuts and seasonal hot treats, and the main museum will house a Steampunk market where festive goods and gifts can be bought.

The event takes place from 9.30am to 4pm and tickets cost £12 for children, including a gift, and £8 for adults.

The museum will also be holding a traditional Christmas Fair on Sunday, December 8, with Santa’s grotto featuring Mrs Claus.

Seasonal entertainment will be available in the courtyard including music, a magic village, train rides, children’s Christmas crafts, festive foods and more.
