Christmas in the Poor House Online Talk
December 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
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!
This virtual live talk will be facilitated by our knowledgeable staff and volunteers using Zoom. Numbers for these hour-long sessions will be limited to allow for Q&A sessions at the end. The Meeting ID to join the online tour will be sent out the morning of the talk.
Clifton House is the social enterprise of Belfast Charitable Society who continue to address disadvantage in Belfast and beyond today.
