THOSE wanting to feel festive can head to Worcester’s Victorian Christmas Fayre which started for the season today.

The event has grown considerably since it started in 1992 and is now one of the main themed-Christmas fayres in the country.

It boasts almost 200 stalls across the city centre selling local arts, crafts, food and gifts.

As well as the usual parking, Worcestershire County Council is providing space in its car parks at County Hall with a Park & Ride service being operated by First Worcester Bus.

Jon Fraser, Worcestershire County Council Highways said: “The Victorian Christmas Fayre has been a tradition in Worcester for nearly 30 years now and for many, it marks the beginning of the festive season.

It is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and brings a much needed boost to the local economy.

“We’re really pleased to be providing the park and ride service again, it’s a great way to enjoy the Fayre and keep the city centre moving.”

The 144 runs from Bromsgrove and Droitwich to Worcester and there are rail services Sunday to Friday with rail replacement buses on Saturdays.
