From the Organizer

Imagine visiting 19th century London at Christmas with the doors flung open in celebration and mirth. Over 750 characters from the imagination, heart and times of Charles Dickens invite you to join the merriment and bring you laughing and dancing into the holiday spirit! The bustling streets of London, immortalized for all time by the mighty pen of Charles Dickens, form the living backdrop of your excursion into Christmas Past. You are a living part of a Victorian Christmas card come to life! Come wander the lanes of Victorian London, as the glow of twilight settles upon the city, with the scent of pine boughs & freshly baked scones floating in the air and the sound of carolers and holiday merrymakers accompanying your stroll. Visit this page for information that performers and aspiring performers need to know, including how to submit a proposal and requirements for performers, including workshops and costume approval. Vendor applications can also be found here. http://dickensfair.com/involved/vendors-performers Please note that The Great Dickens Christmas Fair is a mid-19th century period-appropriate event. No modern performance styles, obvious amplification, clothing or wares.
