Worcester's Victorian Christmas Fayre set to be the biggest ever
THE biggest Victorian Christmas Fayre Worcester has seen has opened offering a feast of festive delights.
From 11am today, the first full day of the event, more than 150 stalls will be offering a raft of seasonal supplies of all varieties.
Running until Sunday, the seasonal spectacular will also be offering all the fun of the fair with entertainment on offer across the day.
Visitors can take in magical dance displays and travel back through time with Victorian-themed juggling stiltwalkers and outside the Guildhall, there will be live music from various local schools and choirs and instrumental performances to entertain all.
Traditional carols will also be on offer alongside a myriad of food stalls offering delights to satisfy visitors’ hunger.
Among the entertainers will be the Happy Wanderers, a group of roving Victorian carol singers, getting shoppers into the Christmas spirit with their merry songs and upbeat antics, roaming around the city centre to spread the Christmas cheer, complete with a Penny Farthing and traditional attire.
Sandra Carter, from the Happy Wanderers, said: “We will be strolling around Worcester Christmas Fayre again this year dressed in Victorian attire and accompanied by a genuine antique 1870 Penny Farthing pram .
“We will be encouraging you to join us and enjoy singing Christmas carols and really lift your hearts with the spirit of Christmas while raising funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice.
“We look forward once again to seeing you all again as we thoroughly enjoy this event.”
There will also be the opportunity to experience the Victorian carousel, while listening to the sounds of barrel organ music.
