The setting for a Christmas carol came to life as Warner Street in Accrington was transformed for a Dickensian Christmas event.
Around 7,000 people flocked to the street filled with independent traders to see revellers in traditional dress, real reindeer and a candlelight procession led by the Accrington Pipe Band.
The historic event includes street entertainers, Victorian fairground rides, market stalls, musicians, a fire dancing fairy and traditional children’s games. The pipe band led a procession to a outdoor nativity play and carol service at St James Church yard.
Evonne Harwood, who organised the event with Kathryn Furey, said it was a great success.
She said: “It was excellent, the event was full from start to finish. We’ve had nothing but positive feedback and we are already planning next year’s event as we speak.
“We had more than 40 stalls selling everything from street food to home made crafts.”
Evonne said the Victorian Arcade in the town was bursting and people turned up to the event in costume.
She added: “We wanted to bring awareness to this side of town.”
