The Enchanted Christmas of John Wesley

Dec 13th, 2017 / 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


We are turning back time here at John Wesley’s House!
Find out how people lived in 18th century London by speaking to our re-enactors inside the house. We will have baking down in the kitchen for you to taste, Wesley will be in his study and Betsy the Housekeeper can tell you all about life here. You can also learn how people made handmade lace with our re-enactors.

Experience the everyday life inside a Georgian upstairs and downstairs inside a Georgian London townhouse for free! Find out more about who John Wesley was, how he helped the poor and find out what chores Betsy and the Cook had to do every day in the house. There will also be make and take Christmas crafts for kids upstairs!

For this special Christmas re-enactment event Wesley’s house will be decorated with greenery and decorations for Christmas!

“We will be opening the front door to the public and giving them the experience of meeting characters dressed up as real people who lived here and find out what their life was like.”- Aisha Al-Sadie, Learning and Community Engagement Officer
