Acts wanted to perform at Chipping Sodbury Victorian Evening
4:01pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
CHRISTMAS may be a while off yet but preparations are well underway for Chipping Sodbury’s biggest festive celebration.
Victorian evening this year takes place on Friday, December 6 (1.30-9.30pm) when the streets will be lined with charity stalls, old time amusements including a Ferris wheel and helter skelter as well as tempting sweet treats and warming mulled wine.
Entertainment on a stage in Broad Street will begin with singing from local school choirs, Sodbury Players will also perform scenes from their forthcoming pantomime and the Dixie Belles will sing live.
There will also be carol singing, steam organs, a clown, Morris men, hot chestnuts for sale, barbecues and a visit from Father Christmas.
Shops will open late and pubs, restaurants and cafes are expected to hold special outdoor stalls.
To help run the event, which attracts thousands of people to the High Street, the organising committee is looking for more volunteers help oversee things run smoothly.
Chairman Brian Hardy said: “Following a fantastic event last year, the group drawn from Sodbury Council, Chipping Sodbury Lions and Rotary clubs and the festival society are again running this event. We would like to have more people volunteering to help on the day, and new members of the committee are welcome.
“We also want to hear from people who are in a choir, band or have a talent to perform. And if you represent a local charity or are involved with some type of fundraising and would like to be considered for a stall download an application form from our website.”
He added: “One of the things that makes Victorian Day a success is the atmosphere created, the snow, smell of food, sound of carols and music. But we could make it even better if we could have lots of people dressed Victorian.”
