Victorian Evening, Lights and Tree Festival

Here are some pictures of Warwick’s famous Victorian Evening on 25th November, when the Mayor switched on the Christmas Lights.

After it was cancelled last year because of Covid-19, the Victorian Evening was better than ever this year with huge crowds enjoying the rides, the traditional fairground organ, the gift stalls and the street food. There was even a Steam Railway on narrow-gauge track laid along the length of New Street. 

There were queues at the door of St. Mary’s as revellers waited to see the Christmas Tree Festival, which this year had a record 51 trees from local organisations, decorated in creative ways. Trees decorated by schools and children’s groups were displayed in the medieval Beauchamp Chapel. And mulled wine was served on a cold but fine evening.

The Christmas Tree Festival will be open until December 5th. Look out for the Unlocking Warwick tree next to the font.
