A 1950s Christmas at Rainham Hall
Inspired by our previous exhibition about the wartime nursery which operated at Rainham Hall from 1943-1954, in December 2018 we decorated for a 1950s Christmas.
In December 2018 visitors could come to Rainham Hall to see the building decorated for a 1950s Christmas. We looked back to the era when the Hall operated as a state-run wartime nursery for local children between 1943-1954, and took inspiration from festive celebrations during this era. As a local newspaper reported in 1954:
" The old house is particularly bright at Christmas, when the children have their annual party and former toddlers help with the festivities"

Please note the Hall is now closed and will reopen in May 2019.
