Get yourself dolled up for the Edwardian Market

After the success of last year’s event, which attracted hundreds of visitors to the city, Lancaster will once again host an Edwardian festival and market later this month.

This year's event will be held over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 25th-26th September and promises to be fun for all the family.

Lancaster's Market traders (both indoor and outdoor) will be wearing clothes in the Edwardian style and it is hoped that members of the public will also come dressed up for the occasion, as they did last year.

“What impressed me last year was the number of members of the general public who’d taken the trouble to join in the spirit," notes Jerry North, Centre Manager for St Nicholas Arcades, "and were wearing some very authentic looking outfits."

It was indeed, great fun - so nip along, perhaps, to Lancaster's Assembly Rooms on King Street - also part of Lancaster Market - where, we're sure, vintage clothes stall holder Lynne Austin get yourself kitted out for the occasion!
