MVTM Offers a Victorian-Themed Holiday Gathering with Character(s)!
Come and Experience a holiday party in a venue just like Mr. Fezziwig’s workplace: a Victorian factory akin to the one in which the kind, jolly man entertained his workers and friends. As we know, it made Scrooge reminisce longingly for the joyous times of Christmas past and helped to rehabilitate his character!
Building on the success of last year’s event, organizers of Mr. Fezziwig’s Christmas Celebration are getting ready for another great party on November 27 starting at 6 pm at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum (3 Rosamond Street East in Almonte). Last year party-goers out did themselves by turning up in period party attire. There was much merriment and singing along with the Valley Voices, who appeared as Victorian carolers, and The Barley Shakers, who kept everyone’s toes tapping. A most amazing array of Dickenson characters, including Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig and Father Christmas, enlivened the festivities. Like last year, this year’s party will include a groaning board of old-fashioned party treats and the biggest, most inspiring Christmas tree you have ever espied.
In addition, there will be a dramatic presentation of a classical Victorian holiday story. The audience will feel like they have stepped into a pop-up book as the Little Match Girl involves everyone in her story.
Enjoy a cup of good cheer while you celebrate the holiday spirit. Tickets are $25 each and can be reserved by calling 256-3754 x11 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org As a Fezziwig party goer remarked at last year’s celebration: “This event is destined to become a much anticipated holiday event in the Valley.”
