Dickensian Festival


Ulverston Dickensian Festival is one of the most popular Dickensian Festival events in the country. It attracts thousands of people, but it’s not too packed for visitors and local people to wander around and have a fabulous time and savour the wonderful atmosphere of a traditional market town in the Dickensian era.

As a community event, we rely heavily on local people and as a result we often cannot firm up our exact programme until just before the event itself as we are subject to many last minute changes.

As well as Ulverston’s fantastic specialist shops, great pubs and cafes, cobbled streets and atmosphere, there is a huge variety of free entertainment, free events for children, costume competitions, balloon modelling, horse drawn carriages, music and dancing. And its all FREE! Plus a wonderful traditional fairground, complete with helter skelter, and lots of music from folk to brass bands.

Why not come in costume and enter into the spirit of the event and take part in our period dress competition and the grand parade around the town which takes place on both days?

When:

23 -24 November

Markets from 10am – 4pm, music events in pubs all day

Where:

Ulverston town centre

Price:

Free
