Friday 1st December 2023 from 5pm
Tavistock’s Dickensian Evening is a magical late-night shopping event that transports you back in time as shop keepers embrace the spirit and dress up in traditional attire.
Christmas light switch-on at 5:45pm.
The smell of chestnuts cooking on steam engines will waft through the streets bringing excitement to children and adults alike. Shops will be open late, and the town will come alive with entertainment on every corner.
The streets are filled with crowds who come to enjoy the old-fashioned traditional Christmas experience.
There will be stilt walkers, choirs, bands, street entertainers all performing throughout town. For children there's an old-fashioned merry-go-round fairground ride and candy floss!
2023 will feature: 'Thawed' Stilt Walkers, Elfic the Juggler, Terrie-Mae McNulty and a Santa Paws Grotto.
Festive Craft, Food & Drink and gift stalls can be found around town and in Butcher’s Hall.
While you're in town, you can take in the festive scenes in St. Eustachius Church.
