This weekend Christmas will officially begin in Portsmouth as we get set for the return of the Victorian Christmas Festival.
Named after one of our city’s most famous residents, the festival will take place between the 29th November to 1st December at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyards.
Once again visitors will delight as they are transported to a bygone era where colourful characters roam the snow-covered cobbled streets.
The much loved traditional Father Christmas dressed in green will be back in all his glory, along with Scrooge in his carry carriage, chimney sweeps, and Victorian magicians and musicians.
For those looking for a little refreshment, there will be Queen Victoria’s Tavern in the Spiegeltent, a bustling Christmas market for early Christmas shoppers, and street performers along the snowy lanes for a range of festive entertainment.
