The Lake District is beautiful all year round, but despite the weather, Christmas brings out the best in the local towns and villages. We have compiled a selection of some of our favourite events to go and see during the festive season.

Each year, Ulverston town centre becomes a scene from ‘A Christmas Carol’, with stall-holders dressed in a traditional Dickensian costume. Throughout the weekend there will be live entertainment, great events for children, warming street food, and plenty of gift stalls. A great weekend for the whole family and a fantastic way to start your Christmas.
