Christmas at Capital E Once Upon a Time ….

Media release: December 2007

Christmas at Capital E Once Upon a Time ….

You’re invited to travel back in time to a Christmas of yesteryear ….

The Main Hall at Capital E will be transformed into a vintage Christmas scene-scape, transporting you back to a Victorian-era Yule-tide. Wander through a snowy London street filled with candlelight and coal-fires, mistletoe and magic. As you stroll down the Christmas High Street you can window-shop to your hearts’ content. Soak up the Noel seasons’ sights, sounds and smells as you explore our Christmas past. You can even take a peek into Scrooge’s bedroom!

There’s also a lot to do. Children will have the opportunity interact with live characters from the Victorian era and hear stories about their life. They will also be able to make traditional Christmas crackers and decorations, use a turn of the century printing press to make their own olden-time greeting cards and sing carols around the pinola, and much much more …

In this Victorian Christmas you’ll discover where so many of today’s Christmas traditions come from!

Gordon Campbell: On Why An Attack On Iran Is Back On The Agenda

Reportedly, Christopher Luxon has the edge on Simon Bridges in National’s leadership contest although there is no firm evidence for that hunch. So, one hesitates about joining a media echo chamber that amplifies Luxon’s chances ahead of the 3pm caucus meeting today. You know how it goes: Luxon doesn’t quite have the numbers, so his people start talking to the media to make him seem like the smart bet.
