Dickensian Festival 2016

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.
