Victorian Weekend, 8th, 9th & 10th December 2017

The 24th Robin Hood’s Bay Victorian Weekend takes place from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th December 2017.  The weekend will feature both new and established events in the village’s quaint old streets. New for 2017 is the price of a free 2-night stay for two in Robin Hood’s Bay ( for the best dressed visitor.

Carol singing and live music will feature prominently throughout the weekend, starting with the switch on of ‘Bay illuminations’ in the dock on Friday evening.

Family fun will include traditional games, beach games and street entertainment as well as the much-loved art exhibition and Open Cottages. Ghost and smugglers walks will also feature in addition to annual favourites such as the RNLI duck race and ‘balls dpown the bank’.

Event co-ordinator Bev Rutherford says: “We are planning a refreshed event which captures the Victorian spirit of Robin Hood’s Bay. Walking between old cottages through narrow…streets surrounded by people in Victorian costume can really transport you back in time.  It’s an atmosphere that cannot be found elsewhere. Combine seasonal gift shopping with the many traditional events…. and it’s clear Robin Hood’s Bay Victorian Weekend is an unmissable Christmas destination for all the family”.
