The Victorian Fayre was first started back in 1992 by traders from picturesque New Street and Friar Street. Now in its 27th year, the Fayre may have grown a lot but it has stayed true to its traditional roots with plenty of Victorian themed characters, festive treats and a wonderful atmosphere. This year there will be almost 200 stalls across the city centre, selling local arts and crafts, delicious street food and gifts.

As part of the Victorian Bright Lights will be show casing its range of personalised gifts creating memorable  experiences for those that receive beautiful gifts this Christmas. We will return to our traditional location on the High outside Office and Boots.

As a family run business we are able to provide bespoke gifts as well as our service. We offer to our customers if you visit our website and wish for anything to be personalised before the Fayre contact us directly and we would be delighted to get your gifts ready. Almost a click and collect service.

As well as a wonderful array of stalls, we are looking forward to a fantastic programme of entertainment.  Look out for Victorian characters in Gin Lane, lofty entertainers on stilts, brilliant musicians on our stages and buskers on every street corner.

There really is something for everyone and we hope you have a wonderful time!
