About Chipping Sodbury Victorian Day

Chipping Sodbury Victorian Day

Every year in the first week of December, The Chipping Sodbury Victorian Day heralds the arrival of Christmas in the town.

As if by magic, Chipping Sodbury is transformed into a wonderland of delights.

The High Street and Broad Street are filled with Side-Shows, a Helter-Skelter, a Big Wheel, Steam Engines, Fair-Ground Organs, Father Christmas and even roasting chestnuts!

The event launches with school choirs performing in the street, followed by entertainers on two stages.

Father Christmas in his sleigh parades through the town headed by a Scottish piper.

The streets are lined with stalls from local charities and organisations, and many people dress up in Victorian costume to enhance the atmosphere.
