During the day families will be invited to attend the festival in Victorian costume. People can come as milkmaids or suffragettes (i think they started in the post Victorian era but the dress changed very little until after WW1.) Men why not come as a Cow Hand or in the spirit of equality a cross channel swimmer in the style of Captain Webb?
There will a be a prize judging going on all day. Our stewards will make themselves known to those in costume and take their details and we will award prizes for the best Children’s costume and the best family ensemble. To make you feel more comfortable the stewards and hopefully some of the retailers will also be in costume. The final decision will be made at 3:00pm and announced and awarded (we hope) at the event control centre in Railway Park.
