Stepping back in time, 'Vintage Christmas' brings fantastic entertainment, an incredible festive market and historical education in a unique setting. Annual Passes are valid. 

Not only will you be entertained throughout, you can shop till you drop in our extensive vintage market for all those unique Christmas gifts that you won't find anywhere on the high street.

See the Museum's own 12 days of Christmas, for the perfect gifts for tank fans.
