Events - Dickens of a Christmas
Even Scrooge will get into the Christmas spirit at Olney's Dickensian fair in December 2015.
Traders dressed in Victorian clothes will pack Olney's Market Place and High Street with stalls offering treats for your festive table and under the tree. Everything from an array of gifts, holly wreaths and wrapping to handmade crafts. Sample delicious mulled wine, hot chocolate and turkey rolls as well as other tasty food and drink on the day. The Farmers market offers delicious local produce.
Children can visit Father Christmas and his elves in the grotto, meet birds of prey and enjoy fairground rides. There are brass bands, street entertainers not to mention three indoor craft fayres. In fact, something for everyone. Every year the event grows in popularity, so organisers have come up with a park and ride system to avoid queues and frustration. See a previous event below. Join in the fun from 10am to 4pm. See our calendar for the details for 2015 - including parking information.
