LIVE DAY | Victorian Hobbies, Games & Crafts

Annaliese Lines from Howick Historical Village

Join us at Howick Historical Village and step back in time to discover what the Victorians did on their days off, in leisure time devoted to crafts, hobbies and games!

See displays of handmade quilts from the museum collection, have a go at hand-crank sewing on a vintage Singer machine, and learn how natural resources were used to dye fabrics! Make your own beeswax candle to take home, or try our iconic butter-making activity! There will be something for everyone with parlour and outdoor games and crafts to enjoy!

Meet costumed Villagers, see the coal range in Puhi Nui homestead fired up, see blacksmiths at work at the forge and attend a Victorian school lesson. The sweet shop will be open and filled with old-fashioned lollies, fudge, and treats.

In a special session at 11am, learn how to level up your garden with natural resources with the Village’s Heritage Gardener, Luke Southern. No booking is required.

Explore the heritage gardens or unwind at the Homestead Café for brunch or lunch. Make a day of it!

Admission: adult $18, student/senior $14, child $10, family $45. Children under 5, members & annual pass holders - free entry. Tickets are available to pre-book on Eventfinda. Unlimited door sales will be available on the day.
