Ingatestone celebrates in style at its annual Victorian Evening

Posted by Denise Turner

Christmas cheer lit up Ingatestone High Street on the 30th November as thousands descended on the village to celebrate its annual Victorian Evening.

The aroma of mulled wine wafted across Market Place as a trusty troupe of shop owners and community groups braved the chilly night air in costumes that wouldn’t have been out of place in a Dickensian novel. Whilst members of the village choral society sang carols inside the Parish Church of St Edmund and St Mary.

In the churchyard, festive fun-seekers queued to have a photograph taken in front of a nativity backdrop and the spirit lifting yell of town crier Tony Appleton kept visitors informed with the wide variety of seasonal entertainment including Morris dancers.

Staff at the Beresfords Ingatestone Office certainly entered into the spirit with the team dressing in Victorian attire and decorating the office accordingly. Visitors to the office were greeted with a range of welcome refreshments to help keep the cold at bay and a chance to win a luxury hamper, champagne and indulgent biscuits as part of grand prize draw. 

One lucky visitor also won a meal at Tims Palace which was kindly donated by the restaurant.

The event, in its seventh year, was organised by a sub-committee of Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council and supported by many local businesses, principally Beresfords Estate Agents, and community groups including the Rotary Club of Ingatestone and the Anglo-European School.
