Christmas at the Fitzwilliam Museum
With two new exhibitions to enjoy, A World of Private Mystery: John Craxton RA (1922 - 2009) and Edmund de Waal's On White, there are plenty of reasons to visit the Fitzwilliam this Christmas.
Catch up on your Christmas shopping and find cards, decorations and unique art inspired gifts and jewellery in our shop. Special items this year include a new winter scarf collection, gifts from Japan (complementing the exhibition The Night of Longing) and arty stocking-fillers. Then relax with seasonal treats in the café, including mince pies, stollen and hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.
We will be posting a different advent calendar image or event each day on Facebook.
And on Christmas day don't miss the MR James: Ghost Writer documentary at 10.05pm on BBC Two which features the Fitzwilliam. This follows the 9.30pm Christmas ghost story The Tractate Middoth.
