Museum of Docklands opens its doors for Christmas fair

The Museum of Docklands in West India Quay held a festive craft fair last night, with crowds enjoying Christmas carols and a brass band.

Visitors browsed stalls selling Christmas gifts including jewellery, ceramics, bags and wallets created by east London designers.

The more adventurous buyers could join in arts and crafts activities as well such as designing and making their own festive badge or Christmas card.

The East London Brass Band performed alongside a choir to lead guests in Christmas carols.

The museum also has a Victorian Santa’s Grotto until December 22, complete with traditional period decorations in its nineteenth century Sailortown gallery.
