Dickensian Evening

Friday 28th November

Dickensian Evening in Tavistock is a truly magical, festive experience and is an important 'red letter' date in Tavistock’s calendar. For many years, it was held on the first Friday in December. It is now held on the last Friday in November, to coincide with the switching on of the town's Christmas Lights. The main streets are closed to traffic and it heralds the real start of Christmas festivities in the Town. All of the shops are open until 9pm, and the Chamber of Commerce organises a wide range of activities – choirs, brass bands, a woodwind band, a fire-eater, jugglers, Morris dancers,and children's rides, to name but a few. The Town looks olde worlde with the Christmas Lights illuminating the streets. Many of the shop-keepers dress up in Dickensian costume, and hand out hot mulled wine to their regular customers as a way of thanking them for their custom throughout the year.
