Victorian Christmas Fayre to make its comeback
As Worcester recovers from the pandemic, plans are being put in place to make sure Christmas 2021 will be one to remember.
After being cancelled last year, the traditional Victorian Fayre will be back from December 2 to 5, with unique traders in place across the city centre alongside music and street entertainers. It will be awash with all the Dickensian festive flavour that people love, helping to bring a welcome boost to local businesses after the impact of Covid.
But this year there will also be more. For the first time, there will also be a month-long yule market in the city centre, with 30 wooden chalets in place– all dressed and lit to add to the festive atmosphere, bringing a touch of Bavaria to Worcester's own seasonal traditions.
The special Christmas market stalls will be in place from December 2 to 23.
The innovative plan has been approved by Worcester City Council's Place and Economic Development Committee.
Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Chair of the Place & Economic Committee said: "The pandemic forced all of us to have a low-key Christmas last year, so I'm delighted to be able to announce the return of festive fun for 2021!
"With both the return of the Victorian Fayre and the city's first-ever month long festive market, I'm confident Worcester people will be able to celebrate yuletide in proper style this year."
