Memories of Christmas

an image is not available
Local author Andrew Clark shares memories of Christmas in a talk that includes demonstrations of old toys and games. Remember the days of waking up on Christmas morning to find your stocking filled with an apple, orange, chocolate coins and a penny at the bottom. There will be vintage toys on display such as roller skates, wooden jigsaws, building blocks, spinning tops, old annuals, leather football and boots, and lots more. You can have a go with the bagatelle, diablo, booler, chuck stones, balls and jacks, yo-yos, skipping ropes, marbles and tops and whips. Relive the days before mobile phones and wireless with the ‘tin can telephone’ made from two old tins and string!
