What's on

Dickensian Evening 2010

Thursday 16th December 2010, 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Location: Centre of Lostwithiel

Lostwithiel's Dickensian Evening 2010 will be held on Thursday December 16th beginning at 6pm and going on until late. This year will be bigger and better than ever with more music, more food and more good will.

If you're wondering what goes on, you're in for a treat, you'll find an old fashioned Victorian Style evening in our Christmas Tree lined streets, with all the local shopkeepers open and dressed up in period costume offering a warm welcome and those unusual gifts you won't find anywhere else and maybe some mulled wine to ward of the winter chill. You'll hear town bands playing and choirs singing carols and Christmas songs, bell ringers ringing, buskers busking, street entertainers entertaining you and an old fashioned children's roundabout. We will also have some of our historic buildings open to the public with our Town Mayor in attendance.

There's no need to eat before you arrive as we will have lots of food available around the town, including a Soup Kitchen, Christmas Sausages with the trimmings, Turkey and cranberry pasties, hot chestnuts and other festive foods and drinks. Bellamama's Christmas pizzas will be back by popular demand. Or why not book into one of the many food establishments who will be serving special menus, such as Muffins.

You'll also find stalls indoor and out selling antiques, books and Christmas crafts, many of which are run by local charities so you can feel good about buying those extra stocking fillers.

Don't think about heading home early when the streets start to empty, there's lots of entertainment in the local pubs, The Kings Arms on Fore St will have live music from 9pm with the Pete Berryman Trio playing gypsy jazz.

So come and join us for Dickensian Evening this year and experience Christmas as it used to be, you'll be in good company and it will really get you in the festive spirit. If you would like any more information, or you are interested in getting involved or having a stall call 01208 873912 and ask for Adrian.
