Victorian Christmas celebration returns to Norfolk

November 3, 2017 by  

Dickens’ Christmas Towne is returning to Norfolk for six weeks beginning this month.

The entire Half Moon Center will be set up to resemble a Charles Dickens-era Christmas celebration. Outside there will be a 120-foot maze which is made of shipping pallets.

Inside there will be puppet shows from the Pickwick Puppet Theater, magicians, and carolers. There will also be a children’s craft corner and an indoor train display.

Families can participate in the Once Upon a Time storybook adventure which is set to feature a talking book and a bookworm. The Arctic Blast Snow and Ice Celebration will celebrate all of the activities available in the winter.

Geoffrey the Talking Christmas Tree will be making appearances and children will have the opportunity to sit down and talk to Santa Claus. For the adults, there will be several vendors offering items for sale.

There will be several special event days including the Princess and Pirate Day on December 27. All children in costume will be admitted free of charge.

Norfolk poster printing firms are often asked to provide materials to advertise popular events such as this.

Dickens’ Christmas Towne will be at the Peter G. Decker Jr. Half Moone Center from November 18 until December 31. Tickets are $5 for everyone aged three and over. For the most current information, call 757-664-1000.
