This Christmas, Melton Mowbray town centre goes back in time to offer a traditional Victorian experience at the Victorian Fayre.
Expect to find locals dressed up in classic Victorian attire and beware of the Victorian street beggars as you make your way around the stalls. There will be Victorian singing and dancing throughout the day with local children putting on a performance for visitors; why not have a dance or two to get into the Christmas spirit? Do not miss the Christmas Tree Festival held in St Mary’s Church and the Festival of Cribs held at Sage Cross Church to get some ideas on how to decorate your tree at home.
Do not forget to take home with you the all-important Melton Mowbray Pork Pies from Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe and some Melton stilton cheese from the Melton Cheeseboard.
The East Midlands Food Festival in Melton Mowbray is one of the largest regional food festivals in the country. Running for over 15 years, lots of loyal and new visitors can enjoy edible delights from some of the country’s finest producers, many from the East Midlands.
