Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November

Ulverston Dickensian Christmas Festival

Why not savour the wonderful atmosphere of a traditional market town in the Dickensian era? There'll be costume competitions, free events for children, horse drawn carriages, balloon modelling, music and dancing. Plus a traditional fairground, complete with Helter Skelter and a variety of music from folk to brass bands.

There will also be a Christmas market, with lots of unusual gifts and festive food, providing plenty of opportunity for Christmas shopping in a great atmosphere. Why not go in costume and enter into the spirit of the event and take part in the period dress competition? A grand parade around Ulverston takes place on both Festival days.

Other stuff to enjoy over the weekend.......

Check out attraction opening times here ...

A Winter Walk to the Lion and the Lamb

The Lion and the Lamb is one of the most iconic natural features in the Lakes. But is it all it appears to be, or is there more to this famous landmark than meets the eye? We take a closer look.

Holme Fell

Holme Fell, (sometimes spelled Holm Fell) sits beside the main A593 road between Ambleside and Coniston. This wonderful fell, the second lowest 'Wainwright', is not as popular as the other low fells in the district, however, those that take the walk to the top are rewarded with superb views. Our walk finishes by returnign via the shore of Yew Tree Tarn, which, unlike most of the tarns in the Lake District, is yet to reach its 100th birthday.

Fancy a walk. Get instructions for a wide range of Lake District Walks here
