Festival of Christmas What's On

WHAT'S ON


This family favourite event, set in the atmospheric dockyard surroundings, is the perfect way to start your festive season celebrations and preparations. You'll be magically transported into a bygone Victorian era of snowy streets - Cheapside and Richside - with seasonal carols and a host of colourful Victorian characters including chimney sweeps, suffragettes, wenches and gentry. The young (and young at heart!) will also delight in seeing a traditional Father Christmas, who will be dressed in green.
