Portsmouth Festival Of Christmas
2018 - Leisuretime Allocated - 4 Days (AUD0148)
The Victorian Festival of Christmas transports visitors to a bygone era where a cast of colourful characters roam the snow-covered cobbled streets, rub shoulders with a medley of street entertainers, enjoy seasonal refreshments and over 150 stalls for perfect gift ideas.
Taking centre stage this year, will be a new, soon-to-be unveiled regiment of 12 life-size naval-inspired figures. Currently still in Santa’s workshop, these specially created artistic installations by selected artists will bring an entirely new look to the famous “12 Days of Christmas” ditty.
Visitors can encounter the ever-popular traditional Father Christmas dressed in green, see Scrooge in his hand-drawn carriage, bump into young chimney sweeps, and enjoy street performances from Victorian magicians and musicians. To top off proceedings, there will be a 35-foot Christmas tree alongside HMS Victory.
Historic parts of the dockyard will be transformed into a Victorian-style street, complete with coffin measurers, ladies of the night, street urchins, market sellers and many more. This year there is a brand new family trail with Vice Admiral Lord Nelson’s favourite jewel at the centre of an intriguing Sherlock Holmes-inspired whodunnit.
