Welcome to the 2015
Otley Victorian Fayre Website
Preparations are in full swing for our 30th Otley Victorian Fayre.
More stalls than ever will be groaning with Christmas goodies for you to buy and eat. Traditional street organs will play their catchy music, dance troupes will perform for your enjoyment, local schools and adult choirs will sing carols on the stage.
The children can enjoy Punch and Judy shows, traditional fairground rides as well as visit the Lion’s Santa’s grotto in the market place. Every year more and more people join in the fun by dressing in Victorian costumes.
As darkness falls there will be a fabulous lantern parade through the town organised and run by Otley Courthouse.
You won’t see candy floss sellers, helium balloons, flashing light stalls or beef burger vans. You will be able to eat wonderful, high quality street food and discover the many cafes, shops and pubs that our town has to offer.
Take a stroll around our many courtyards and alleys to discover our brightly decorated shops and pubs.
For just £1 you can buy the official programme from many of our shops. There is a free prize draw inside worth £200 as well as a map showing where everything is and timings for the stage.
We are indebted to Hamper Gifts (www.hampergifts.co.uk) for providing hampers as prizes for the various competitions for the Victorian Fayre, including those for Large and Small window displays, shop selling most programmes and the Spirit of the Fayre prize. This incentive will ensure a true Victorian feel to the big day
Come and join us, enjoy yourself and kick-start your Christmas celebrations.
If you have never been to our beautiful town and want to know the delights it has to offer during the rest of the year please see www.visitotley.co.uk for further information
