The magic of the Bembridge House Victorian Christmas returns again this year! Guests will enjoy learning about the holiday traditions of yore and be enchanted by the beauty of the decorations as they tour the lovely 1906, historic Queen Anne home. This year’s theme is “Toys & Yuletide Tunes.” It was during the reign of Queen Victoria, which began in 1837, that the Holiday traditions that we celebrate today came to be. The house not only showcases Victorian holiday décor, but the creativity of the volunteer decorators from many of Long Beach Historic Districts, Community Groups, and Long Beach Heritage itself. Beautifully crafted, handmade bird and garden-themed accessories and plants can be found in the carriage house garden boutique.

The traditional daytime event will be held on the first Sunday of December, December 3, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.. Besides tours of the House, this family-oriented day will include crafts for children in the Carriage House, a visit from Santa, and refreshments. The South Coast Chorale will be singing carols for everyone to enjoy.

Last year’s first evening event was so popular it sold out. As such, this year, two adults-only evening Victorian Christmas receptions and tours will be held. The first on Friday, December 1, and the second on Friday, December 8, both from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The evening setting demonstrates the Bembridge House yuletide spirit beautifully. You will be dazzled by the sparkle of the twinkling lights, the glow of the candles, and the shine of the chandeliers. Bring friends so you can celebrate the season together with a cup of holiday wassail. Additional home tours will be given on Tuesdays, December 5, 12, and 19, and Saturdays December 9, 16, and 30, from 1:30 p.m. to 2: p.m.30 As space is limited, reservations are required for the evening tours. Victorian Christmas is open to all, members and guests. Reservations for all of the Victorian Christmas Tours are $10.00 per a person. For the family Sunday event, children under 12 are free with an adult and prior reservation, but may be purchased at the door for full price. Tickets can be purchased through PayPal on or by mail at Long Beach Heritage, P.O. Box 92521, Long Beach 90809. For additional information, please visit or call 562-493- 7019. Proceeds will be used to maintain the historic Bembridge House.
