What is it?
The Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza has been running annually in the Welsh resort for 32 years, originally set up to show off the beautiful seaside town at the start of the holiday season.
This year, the family friendly extravaganza will take place over the bank holiday weekend, from Saturday 5th to Monday 7th May.
For 2018, the event will see a return to its original idea and feature a large vintage steam funfair and mighty traction engines taking to the main streets again.
This year there will be a focus on its original concept of creating a true Victorian extravaganza and will be encouraging visitors to don their best Victorian dress and join in the daily parade at 12 noon.
The Grand Daily parade is one of the event’s main highlights and will feature a host of vintage vehicles, marching bands and traction engines.
Entertainment will aim to take visitors back to days gone by, when performers would baffle and delight audiences with colourful sideshows.
This year’s performers will include Andrew Van Buren a true showman guaranteed to entertain with his illusions show. The event will also boast a host of fire breathers and stilt walkers; and for that true seaside feel, the George Formby Society will be playing daily.
The main stage will play host to the Linzi Grace school of dance, silver bands and the sound of the mighty Wurlitzer.
