Taking place across the whole season, the Winter Festival at the Museum of the Home is a thoughtful and fun celebration of the many events that punctuate the cold winter months.

From Halloween to Hanukkah, Diwali to Lunar New Year, the Museum of the Home will host a range of celebrations for visitors. These festivals will be marked in different ways across the Museum site, from a major light installation on the exterior of the building to our much loved Christmas Past exhibition.

The Winter Festival explores themes of light, kindness, warmth and colour, and also unpacks some of the complexities people face during this season; such as loneliness and family life.
