Portsmouth Victorian Christmas Market
29 November – 1 December
This family-favourite event, set in a dockyard steeped in history, is the perfect way to start the festive season. Charles Dickens' father, John Dickens, helped manage the Naval Pay Office here which you can still see at the end of College Road. Here, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, Oliver Twist and a fabulous market come together for a Dickensian Christmas celebration, 200 years after his birth.
