The Victorian Fayre was first started back in 1992 by traders from picturesque New Street and Friar Street. Now in its 26th 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. Where you will also be able to find Bright Lights, position on the High Street near  Boots.

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! Wrap up warm
