Visitors to the Brunswick Heritage Museum’s annual Victorian Christmas celebration were captivated by a very special guest on Saturday, November 29, when Professor Horn presented his authentic Punch and Judy Show in the Museum’s Victorian Parlor.
Professor Horn, who is a third generation presenter of this illusion and puppetry based entertainment, sent about 100 visitors into gales of laughter and amazement over three performances. His appearance at the Museum was made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Frederick County. The Museum was thrilled to welcome Community Foundation Trustee Shirley Shores to the performance.
“I can’t remember the last time I heard so much laughter here at the Museum,” Museum curator Rebecca O’Leary said. “Professor Horn really made Victorian Christmas special, and we couldn’t have done it without the kind support of the Community Foundation.”
The Museum will continue its holiday celebrations on December 13th, when it will participate in the countywide Museums by Candlelight celebration. The Museum will be open from 10-5 free of charge on the 13th, and patrons are invited to try an authentic Victorian Christmas cake and to make a Victorian Christmas cornucopia to take home. More information about Museums by Candlelight can be found at www.visitfrederick.org.
