LLandudno Victorian Extravaganza

Established in 1986 the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza is an annual event which takes place on the May Day Bank holiday weekend.

It brings in an average of 250,000 ranging from locals to tourists and approximately £15million revenue for the local community.

The Victorian Extravaganza is a great day out for all the family, over the years has seen a great array of entertainment such jugglers, stilt walkers, people parading in Victorian costumes as they did in the old days, and town criers. A very important part of the Victorian Extravaganza is the transport festival, which attracts a large range of exhibits including lorries, military and buses, motorcycles, tractors, bicycles, and both vintage and classic cars.

The Great Parade is also incorporated into the Victorian Extravaganza every year, and is wonderful for all to see. The route is approximately ¾ mile and lasts for about 45mins.

This year saw an increase in the amount of people travelling from all over the UK and also an increase in the number of people dressing up in Victorian costumes. This is a great sign of things to come as next year sees the 25th anniversary of the Victorian Extravaganza.

As well as some of the regular acts as mentioned above this year also saw victorian bobbies which towered above people on stilts and interrogated any body not dressed in victorian costumes, victorian wrestlers, magic by Jay Gatling a young magician who performed illusions, magic tricks and stage magic, Harley the clown, Llandudno town band, the North Wales George Formby society, the Wirral pipe band, and Roslyn Walker the brilliant escapologist, to name just a few. There were also live stage performances from some of some of Llandudno’s great talents and some fantastic music by the Rhyl Silver Band and Brazilian Samba Reggae an energetic and exciting group from Barmouth.

The main high street in also packed with entertainment and amenities such as fairground rides, exhibits, and food stalls.
