Record crowds for Christmas festival

Beverley Festival of Christmas 2013

Beverley Festival of Christmas 2013

Beverley’s much anticipated Festival of Christmas took place at the weekend attracting record crowds of around 60,000 according to organisers.

This year’s festival was opened by Strictly Come Dancing star, Camilla Dallerup, who joined in the famous Christmas parade beforehand.

Despite the cloudy and grey weather, attractions such as Father Christmas and his reindeer, the classic car show, musical performances and over 120 stalls saw huge numbers attend the festival, the biggest one day event of its kind in the region.

Sarah Cooper, who travelled from Cheshire to attend the event said: “This is the second year in a row that we have attended the festival and it keeps on getting better and better. The quality of the stalls, entertainment and activities are second to none and it all fits perfectly in such a beautiful little town like Beverley.

“We will definitely be back next year with even more friends.”

Our photographer Mike Hopps was out and about capturing the event.
