Christmas in the Poor House | Aaron D. McIntyre | Newtownabbey Branch

Monday, 13 December 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm GMT

Zoom Talk by Aaron D. McIntyre (Archive & Heritage Coordinator, Clifton House Heritage Centre) for NIFHS Newtownabbey Branch.

This talk will look at the Christmas traditions in the Poor House and how they developed through the years. Using original research from our archives we will tell the story of those responsible for bringing some festive cheer into the house in the 1800s, bringing it right up to the present with the annual Benn Christmas Dinner which has been celebrated in Clifton House since 1882!
