Ulverston Dickensian Festival
Saturday 23rd November 2019
County Square, Ulverston, Cumbria LA12 7LZ
The Victorian era of A Christmas Carol author Charles Dickens is evoked in this fabulous pre-Christmas festival. It is right up our street as we love dressing up in period costume. We’ve been attending since the very first event and feel that we are part of the furniture! From its brass bands and traditional helter skelter to roasting chestnuts and hog roasts, the town brilliantly recreates times gone by with its charming shops, great pubs, street food, cobbled streets, horse-drawn carriages and music and dancing. Held just a month before Christmas it’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on some unusual gifts and get yourself in the festive mood. No ‘humbugs’ here – just lots of delicious Grasmere Gingerbread®.
