C LINDEN christmas

All are invited to join The Bristol Art Museum and Linden Place Mansion on Saturday, December 15, 2018 from 1 pm – 4 pm for our first ever Holiday Family Free Day!

This event will be campus-wide, with activities held at both locations over the course of the afternoon.

Santa will be soaring in from the North Pole to join attendees for a Santa Sketch, led by BAM’s beloved “Art Studio for Kids” instructor, Elizabeth O’Connell. Children can also write letters to Santa and pose for a holiday photo with the man himself.

After the excitement, settle in for a fun holiday story-time with Mrs. Katz and Her Hats, visiting us from the Roger’s Free Library.

Finish your day with a musical performance by the Wheeler School Holiday Handbell Ringers in Linden Place’s beautiful ballroom, complete with cookies and hot cocoa generously provided by Sunset Café and Dunkin’ Donuts in Bristol.

Admission is FREE with a donation to Toys for Tots. Donations will be accepted at either site and allow admission to both locations. For any questions, please call the office of Linden Place Mansion or The Bristol Art Museum.
