One of the largest single-day Christmas events in the UK is due to return to East Yorkshire.

The Beverley Festival of Christmas – which was first held in 1995 – will take place on Sunday December 14, offering a range of traditional and new attractions for all the family.

These include free face painting for children, historical re-enactments, bands, a number of Victorian-style fairground rides and birds of prey.

This year’s festival will also see the return of the Victorian market, where more than 120 stallholders dressed in Victorian costumes will present their products. Many of them will be selling homemade crafts, clothes, gifts and foods.

Councillor Jane Evison, who is responsible for economy, investment and inequalities, said backing local businesses was “so important”, adding that the festival gave them a fantastic chance to sell their wares.

She added that the event had an economic value of more than £1 million for Beverley and the surrounding area.

Up to 50,000 people are expected to attend the festival this year.
