In pictures: Portishead Victorian evening
PEOPLE flocked to Portishead’s High Street for the town’s Victorian Evening.
The traditional street fair which dates back more than 30 years saw the High Street lined with stalls, sideshows and children’s rides. Scores of people got in to the spirit of things and dressed in Victorian costume and traders tempted customers with mulled wine, mince pies and other festive fair.
Portishead Concert Band, Highly Strung fiddle band and carol singers from Elim and St Peter’s churches entertained the crowds, while young people from Portishead Youth Club provided street dancing.
Churches Together gave people the chance to dress up and take part in a nativity scene.
The Victorian Evening is one of the main fundraising activities for the town’s Christmas lights.
