Dorman Museum

Visitors to the Dorman Museum will experience a fabulous Edwardian Christmas this weekend.

Find out what Christmas was like 100 years ago in the free event which runs from 11am to 4pm on Saturday (December 17) and Sunday (December 18).

There will be traditional Christmas craft making for children and Edwardian circus performers will entertain.

Santa will be in his front room ready to hear Christmas wishes.

Free heritage bus tours to the Transporter Bridge, which celebrated its centenary this year, will take place at 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm from the front of the museum.

The event is free but there is a £2 charge for a Santa visit, which includes a gift.

The museum is located next to Albert Park and the Cenotaph just off Linthorpe Road. Middlesbrough railway and bus stations are a 20 minute walk away on a mostly level route.

There are frequent buses 11,12,27 & 63 that travel along Linthorpe Road.

Parking is permitted on the street to the front and side of the museum.
