Victorian Evening

Coming Late November is the Annual Victorian Evening.

This is a great event for the town which always attracts a lot of visitors. Sadly due to police restrictions, Smith Street cannot take part in the event in their usual style. As you know from previous posts the Smith Street Traders like to implement a road closure and celebrate in style. The Warwickshire police Force decreed more than 6 years ago that closing Smith St caused too many traffic problems.

Just because Smith Street can’t do its thing, that shouldn’t stop you from coming to Warwick to enjoy all things Victorian including; ferret racing, a carousel powered by a steam engine and if you’re lucky you may even encounter someone dressed up in period costume. They won’t have small pox though or any other Victorian ailments, so you’ll be fine.
