share close

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a Victorian Christmas as Warwick’s much loved Victorian Evening returns to the town on Thursday, 25 November 2021.


The event starts from noon in the Market Square and surrounding streets with a Victorian market, a new edition for 2021. The era-themed rides begin from 3 pm, just in time for the kids to finish school, with the main event starting at 5 pm. The lights will be switched on at 7 pm.


Visitors can browse the Victorian Christmas Market with crafts, gift ideas and community stalls with some traders in traditional costume. The whole family will be entertained with various fairground rides, amusements and street entertainers whilst enjoying the festive food and drink, and there’s an opportunity to meet real-life reindeer at the Lord Leycester Hospital. And, in keeping with tradition, the Christmas Tree Festival will be taking place in St Mary’s Church.


People are also encouraged to get into the nineteenth-century spirit with the annual competition for the best dressed Victorian. The winners in both the adult and child categories will be revealed on stage at 7.30 pm. 


Prizes include a one-night stay for a family of four at Warwick Castle, tickets for Warwick Racecourse and a free football-themed birthday party at St Nicholas Park Leisure Centre, courtesy of Everyone Active.


Councillor John Cooke, the Cabinet member for Place & Economy, said: “The Victorian Evening is a staple event in Warwick’s calendar which brings thousands of people into the town. It provides a great atmosphere, helps to promote the local businesses, and kicks off the festive season in true Victorian style!


Jamie John Walker, Company Director of CJ’s Events Warwickshire Limited, added: “We’ll have over 60 festive stalls offering Christmas gifts and decorations; it’s a great way to get in the festive spirit. There will also be a great range of street food traders located around the event. We’re encouraging everyone to come along and support local independent businesses for one of Warwick’s biggest nights.”
