The fantastic Ulverston Dickensian Christmas Festival is celebrating its 15th year and takes place over the weekend of Saturday 24th November and Sunday 25th November 2012!
This is one of the most popular Dickensian Festival events in the country. It attracts thousands of people but its not too packed for visitors and local people to wander around and have a fabulous time and savour the wonderful atmosphere of a traditional market town in the Dickensian era.
As well as Ulverston's wonderful specialist shops, great pubs and cafes, cobbled streets and great atmosphere, there is a huge variety of free entertainment, free events for children, demonstrations, costume competitions, hog roasts, food stalls, horse drawn carriages, music, dancing. And its 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. Plenty of opportunity for Christmas Shopping in a great atmosphere. Plus lots of places for food and drink and all the Ulverston eateries to welcome you in.
Why not come 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?
