Grassington Dickensian Festival
Saturdays 30th November and 7th / 14th December 2013
For three Saturdays before Christmas, Grassington travels back in time for the annual Dickensian Festival. Visitors are treated to a glorious array of sights, tastes and smells from a bygone era. The village is adorned in Christmas lights, the square and streets come alive with a traditional market with shopkeepers and villagers dressed in Victorian costume. Visitors can revel in delight at the musicians, dancers, street entertainers and exhibitions of traditional country crafts. The Grassington Dickensian Festival is held throughout the village from 11am to 5pm

How to Get to the Festival
