There are also pony rides, traditional fairground attractions, a Victorian magic lantern show and a planetarium.

Christmas presents will be available from the craft fair, choirs and bands will be performing festive music around the museum, while there will be festive refreshments including a traditional hog roast, hot roast chestnuts, mince pies and mulled wine.

The museum's Edwardian Tea Room will be open for seasonal treats.
