It’s a cracker of a festival full of fun and nostalgia

Have your say

With a touch of the old and a hint of the new Garstang pulled off another Christmas cracker of a festival.

Thousands descended on the market town over two nights for the annual Victorian Festival for an evening of festival fun and nostalgia.

And business was booming for the High Street’s shops and eateries as revellers took the opportunity for some added Christmas shopping. The festival committee proved why the community event has become a firm favourite on the seasonal calendar for families across the county with an endless list of exhibits, entertainment and foods for people to enjoy. Stilt walkers, jugglers and morris dancers were among the entertainers making their way up and down the packed streets. With bands and carol singing, in between the fairground rides and a huge range of stalls offering festive fare and gifts.
