The Holly & The Ivy - A Natural History of Christmas

Tuesdays from 29 November, 2-4pm.

Discover the connections between wildlife, the natural world and the year’s biggest seasonal celebration with Keith Bowey. From the greenery you decorate your home with to the food you eat at Christmas this 4 week course (incl 2 seasonal walks starting 1.30pm) will take you deep into the natural origins of our Christmas customs and traditions and will shine a festive light on the darkest and most wonderful time of the year.

Indoor classes take place at the Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle NE2 4PT. Outdoor classes involve walking in the wider countryside (for further details click here).

Cost: £34 (concessions £28).
