Be entertained by performances from the Salvation Army and Worcester Cathedral Voluntary Choir. The opening ceremony will close at 6.00pm.
Explore a Victorian Slum
Back for its third year, this immersive and playful production brings you shady characters, performances and sing-songs to provide an alternative Victorian experience.
Step back in time and into the dark world of ‘Gin Lane’: a Victorian alleyway with its debauched inhabitants, cast out of society due to their unsavory behavior!
Look out for the Gin Lane characters wandering around the city leading you onwards to the alley itself! Make your way to the Shambles to immerse yourself amongst the hawkers and flower sellers, magic and alchemy, urchins, gin addiction, singing and dancing…
Gin Lane, produced by Clik Clik Collective, features local artists and performers including ‘Play it again Dan’ tinkling the ivories, and ‘Worcester Theatremakers’ accompanied by mischievous urchins from their youth theatre and after school clubs. Keep an eye on your pockets!
You can find Gin Lane between New Street and The Shambles Friday 5-9pm & Saturday 4-8pm
Clowning around Worcester
The Worcester Victorian Fayre wouldn’t be complete without our wonderful walkabout entertainers! These lofty fellows have been entertaining our crowds since the very beginning of the event in 1992 and we are delighted to welcome them back this year for all four days of the event.
The team has performed internationally for many years! Look out for them roaming around as various characters including their Victorian Festive Gentlemen Jugglers, performing splendid juggling and witty banter as they go!
We have invited Worcester musicians to join us on the streets to celebrate the Victorian Fayre! There should be plenty of opportunities to sing along with our buskers throughout the event, they’ll be popping up and playing all over the city for all four days
Enjoy Worcester talent
Several local school choirs will be performing at this year’s Christmas Fayre.
