Dickensian Christmas Festival

One of Ulverston’s oldest and most loved festivals is coming up on the 23rd & 24th November. Bring the family and step back in time for a day or the whole weekend. Ride the Victorian helter skelter, take in the smell of roasting chestnuts and mulled wine, and listen to the brass bands bringing Christmas cheer to all. If you really want to get into the spirit of the festival, why not come in costume and take part in the grand parade around the town. dickensianfestival.co.uk

#ulverston is a #greatplacetolive

Many people volunteer their time and skills generously and inconspicuously, to enable the myriad of activities to take place that enrich peoples’ lives. For example, youth organisation leaders, athletics coaches, carers, councillors, and so on. Some of the activities listed in our Events Calendar provide a lifeline for members of our community who may otherwise have limited opportunities for social interactions, which are essential for their mental health and well-being. Through the continuing efforts and generosity of caring people, #ulverston is more than just a Festivals Town, it’s also a #greatplacetolive.
