Dicken's Fair

Over the weekend we went to the Dickens Fair.  This is the first time we have been to the Dickens Fair.  My sister-in-law went with us.
It is an adventure into 19th Century Victorian London.  There are lots of costumed players in the music halls, pubs, dance parties and Christmas shops.  There are Dickens characters roaming the streets like Ebenezer Scrooge, Ghost of Marley, Father Christmas, Mrs. Claus, Ghost of Christmas Past and Present, chimney sweeps and more.  There are  lots of good food like roasted chestnuts, meat pies, pasties, bangers and mash.  The meat pies were really good.  We had steak and mushroom meat pies.  There were a lot of really cool shops lining the different streets.  There were lots of fair goers dressed up in Victorian clothes and some of them were dressed as Steam Punks which is interesting.
We had a good time.  Will definitely go again next year and I may even dress up.  Although I should have bought some clothes at the fair.
