Ulverston’s Dickensian Christmas Festival will be held this year over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of November. Each year it attracts thousands of people to the town, with many visitors coming by coach from far afield. The Fair is also a big favourite with locals too who put in a lot of time and effort helping organising the event, and coordinating the programme of entertainment.
As well as Ulverston's fantastic specialist shops, great pubs and cafes, cobbled streets and great atmosphere, there is a huge variety of free entertainment, free events for children , costume competitions, balloon modelling, horse drawn carriages, music, dancing. And it’s all FREE! Plus a wonderful traditional fairground, complete with Helter Skelter, and lots of music from Folk to Brass Bands.
There is also a fabulous Christmas market, with lots of unusual gifts and festive food with stands selling everything from mulled wine and mince pies to Hog Roasts. There is plenty of opportunity to do some Christmas Shopping and buy some unique gifts. All the cafés and restaurants and Pubs in the town will be open – so you can make a whole day of it and bring the family.
Why not join in and come along in costume and enter into the spirit of the event and take part in our period dress competition and the grand parade around the town which takes place on both days?
