The biggest Victorian fayre so far

Worcester Editorial 4th Nov, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

MORE stalls than ever will be at this month’s Victorian Christmas Fayre with organisers describing it as the biggest and best yet.

The event, which takes place from Thursday, November 27, until Sunday, November 30, will have more than 150 stands featuring a huge array of goodies and gifts from crepes to crafts and Christmas crackers.

Now in its 22nd year, it is the last one to be run by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce before it is taken over by LSD Promotions in 2015 – the company which is set to run Worcester’s revamped markets.

Hailed as the most prestigious Victorian themed street market in the Midlands this year’s fayre will have something for all ages to enjoy.

Stallholders and entertainers will be dressed in traditional Victorian costume, making visitors feel like they have just walked through a time machine.

From chimney sweeps to Victorian ladies and gentlemen, the streets of Worcester will be awash with the sights and sounds of years gone by. With carols ringing out from every corner, nothing quite encapsulates our Christmas spirit like the Victorian Fayre.

However, it is not only an opportunity to step into the atmospheric environment that our ancestors would have enjoyed when walking the city streets at Christmas years ago, but it provides the chance to come and support local businesses.

More than 100,000 people from far and wide pack the streets of the city every year to enjoy what the Fayre has to offer.
