Where: Ilfracombe, Devon
What is it?
The annual Ilfracombe Victorian Celebration will take place in the north Devon coastal town from Thursday 11th to Wednesday 17th June 2015. The Victorians were responsible for developing Ilfracombe into a magnificent seaside resort, making it the perfect place to hold a celebration of all things Victorian.
Visitors to the Ilfracombe Victorian Celebration can expect to see members of the town dressed up in costume, as well as watch parades, concerts and shows. The week-long event begins on Thursday 11th with a Sweeps and Nannies Day, a Suffragette Rally, a Teddy Bears Pic-Nic, as well as competitions and shows. On Friday 12th there will be cowboy raids, country dancing, cream teas and a Grand Ball.
Then on Monday 15th there will be a charity Victorian garden party and a Cowboy Supper, followed by a coffee morning and more museum events on Tuesday and Wednesday.
This year’s celebration will also include an event on Monday 15th to commemorate the 800 years since the signing of the Magna Carta.
