On the second Thursday in December, Lostwithiel lights up with its Annual Dickensian Evening. The ever popular festive event has been running for 17 years. The streets are filled with crowds who come to enjoy the old fashioned traditional Christmas experience with a Victorian Theme.

The evening officially starts at 6pm with a lantern parade down Fore St. This will meander through the town arriving back at the Church for a final song. Following on from 6.30pm we'll have Choirs and bands all evening in the Church. There will be further music, choirs and performances all over town throughout the evening keeping you entertained.

The evening features live music, festive food and drink, late night shopping, arts and crafts stalls, a vintage fair, children entertainment and, of course, a personal appearance by Santa himself.

With stallholders and shopkeepers dressed in traditional Dickensian costumes, Lostwithiel Dickensian Evening has something to get everyone into the festive spirit.

Fore Street, Lostwithiel will be alive to the sound of music and entertainment Shops in the town will remain open until 9pm.

When the festivities end at around 9pm, the evening continues with live music and entertainment in local pubs and clubs.

Shops in the town will be open late and shopkeepers dress up in Victorian garb, you'll also find Vintage, Antiques, Craft and gift stalls in the Church Rooms.

For children there's a swing carousel and stilt walkers in Parade Square and a traditional Santa's grotto is a must visit.

There are plenty of refreshments available, with restaurants and cafes open all evening, lots of street food including a hog roast and hot chestnuts from the local YFC, wood fired Pizzas named especially for Dickensian evening, hot pots and festive sausages.
