llandudno victoria extravaganzaIt’s nearly time for another Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza! The Easter weekend is over, but fear not as another Bank Holiday weekend is on its way at the end of April! Get ready for the brilliant annual event in Llandudno. This will commence on 30th April until 2nd May 2016.

This event truly is one of the real gems of the Welsh event calendar and becomes increasingly popular each year. Back in 1986, the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza was launched as a way of celebrating the town’s past by showcasing some of the amazing technologies and innovations from the era. It’s certainly fair to say that it’s come a long way since then!

Many people dressed in Victorian costumes and strolled the streets helping the photographers to get the shots they needed for the photography competition. You will still see a lot of the traditional events happening today as they did back in the 1980’s, but with many more recognisable activities going on.

This year the Victorian Extravaganza is turning 30 years old! It will be an extra special celebration that sees a variety of entertainment for all the family to enjoy. There will be a range of enticing shows and displays, lots of stalls and small exhibitions, puppet shows and a variety of other activities available – even fairground rides! You can enjoy all of the traditional carnival games such as the duck pond, shooting games, coconut shy and many games of skill and chance during Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Enjoy fun, food, drink and entertainment in the heart of the seaside town of Llandudno, the perfect activity to enjoy over the Bank Holiday Weekend!
