An Edwardian Christmas

Mayor turns back the clock with Edwardian Christmas cheer

An Edwardian Christmas

Old-fashioned festive fun will delight visitors to Walsall Town Hall this weekend when the Mayor recreates a Christmas past.

Councillor Garry Perry is staging Edwardian Day on Saturday 10 December and will transform the town hall and Mayor’s Parlour accordingly.

Gift ideas a-plenty and for all tastes and pockets will be on offer at a Christmas Craft Fayre which will be held in the town hall from 10am until 2pm on the day.

Visitors are also being invited to enjoy a tour around the Mayor’s Parlour and Council House which will be suitably styled in keeping with the Edwardian theme.

Admission is free and there is still some space available for people to set up a stall at the Christmas Craft Fayre.

The Mayor said: “It doesn’t matter how cold and grey it is outside – a warm welcome will be guaranteed inside this Saturday.

“We have decided to recreate a traditional-style Christmas by opting for an Edwardian theme and the free tours of the Council House will also give people a chance to have a few quieter moments.”

People who wish to have a stall or book a place on a tour are asked to contact the Mayor’s Office on 01922 652013 or email:

The seasonal flavour will carry on into the evening with a Mayoral Christmas Concert at the town hall from 7.30pm until 10pm.

Guests will be able to enjoy performances from Pelsall Schools Choir, Pelsall Ladies Choir, Forest Arts Wind Band and vocalists Amy Hook and Graham Foxall.

Tickets cost just £3 and children under 12 can attend free of charge.

Net proceeds from this event will go to the Mayor’s Charity Appeal.

Doors open at 7pm and tickets are available through the Mayor’s Office on 01922 652072 or from Kind Thoughts on Pelsall High Street.

The Mayor’s chosen charities are The Creating Chances Trust, The Swing and PROUD (Parents Relatives and Others Understanding Down’s Syndrome.
