Warwick is counting down to its much loved Victorian Evening which takes place on Thursday 29 November from 5-9pm.
Touch FM will host a packed programme of entertainment on stage in Market Place where Father Christmas will join the Mayor of Warwick to switch on the lights at 7pm. Visitors can browse the Victorian Christmas Market with crafts, gift ideas and community stalls. The whole family will be entertained with various fairground rides and amusement whilst enjoying the festive food and drink. Not to be missed is the Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary’s Church and an opportunity to see the Warwick Poppies.
Abi McCartney Business Support and Events Officer for Warwick District Council said; “Warwick Victorian Evening is a firm favourite in the town; it’s always a busy event with a great atmosphere so please arrive in plenty of time.”
Visitors to the event are encouraged to get into the nineteenth century spirit with the annual competition for the best dressed Victorian with the winners in both the adult and child categories being announced on stage at 7.30pm.
Warwick District Council car parks are FREE from 3pm on Thursday 29 November. Off-street car parks include Linen Street, West Rock and St Nicholas Park. Please note that the on-street parking will still be charged.
