Hungerford Victorian Extravaganza 2021

Hungerford Chamber of Commerce has been organising the Hungerford Extravaganza for nearly 30 years but had to take a break last year due to the pandemic. “We are delighted to be able to hold the Extravaganza again this year on Friday 10 December and to bring back the Victorian theme,” explains Chamber Chairman Karen Salmon. “It is a great opportunity for the community to come together and transform our lovely High Street into a magical Christmas occasion.”

The High Street and Town Hall will be full of stalls from 5pm, there will be rides for the children, and the Parade at 7pm.  There will be prizes for Best Dressed Stallholders, Best Dressed Shopkeepers and Best Christmas Window.

The Chamber of Commerce is holding two workshops on Saturday 27 November to help everyone prepare for the Extravaganza and get into the spirit.

Lantern-making workshop 10am – 4pm The Croft Field Centre. Make your own lantern for the Extravaganza Parade. Instructions and materials will be provided. £3 donation for materials.

Victorian Costume-making Workshop 2 – 5pm Hungerford Hub & Library. Come and learn how to make Victorian costumes including a mop cap and cape. If you have fabric or costumes to donate please contact Penny on penny@pennypost.org.uk
