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.
Previous Victorian Day entertainment has included:
While there is limited parking on the High Street, Chipping Sodbury's free car park, Waitrose, Bowling Hill and the Cow Mills and surrounding estates are available for parking.
Unfortunately there is no close disabled parking other than places in the town car park.
Please note that Chipping Sodbury's Broad Street, High Street, Hatters Lane, Wickwar Road and Hounds Road will be closed to all traffic 12-8pm.
The entire event is organised by a team of dedicated volunteers who strive each year to make it more exciting than ever before.
