The Victorian Christmas event in 2021, promoted by Charlton Kings Parish Council and supported enthusiastically by the local businesses, saw a large number of people enjoying the festivities.

Quite a few were in Victorian costume, though this was not compulsory, and in fact two stormtroopers also attended from a long time ago and a galaxy far, far away.

The occasion was given its official start by the Mayor, Councillor Steve Harvey, who introduced the Cheltenham Children's Choir to sing carols. Businesses stayed open late, doing a good trade in gifts, food, and drink, Father Christmas was kept busy throughout, and there was a further performance by the St. Edward's School Choir in their garden space next to Sixways Surgery.

It was such a success that the date has already been set for 2022!

Father Christmas and his helpers will be here to get us all into the Christmas spirit with their trusty reindeer.
