Surrey Museum hosts retro Christmas bash

Retro enthusiasts are invited to a 1950s showcase featuring live, rocking holiday tunes, vintage ornaments and #SMUglySweaters

Tinsel trees give the Yuletide season a mid-century feel. This Saturday Dec. 19

Sample some apple cider and ginger spice cookies, and listen to some live, rocking Christmas tunes by singer-songwriter Reid Jamieson this Saturday at the Surrey Museum.

Retro enthusiasts are invited to the ‘50s-themed showcase – a Very Vintage Christmas  Party – a family-friendly drop in event from 1-4 p.m.

http://webpapersadmin.bcnewsgroup.com/portals/uploads/cloverdale/.DIR288/wREID-bw.jpgJamieson, a celebrated, velvety-throated singer who has been a regular on CBC radio’s Vinyl Cafe, has a love for ‘50s era musicians, making him a natural choice for a mid-century inspired Yuletide party.

There will be plenty to do: have your photo taken with Santa, and make vintage ornaments and tinsel wreaths – just the touches to help transform your home into a fabulous ‘50s feel.

There’s also an Elf-on-the-Shelf scavenger hunt through the museum galleries, plus a SMUglySweater selfie station where visitors can pose in a tacky Christmas sweater without actually having to buy one – and Tweet about it later using the #SMUglySweater hashtag or by visiting the museum’s Twitter page at @ASurreyMuseum.

The Surrey Museum at 17710 56A Avenue is open Tuesday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is sponsored by the Friends of the Surrey Museum and Archives Society. Call 604-592-6956 or visit surrey.ca/heritage.
