About Ware Dickensian

We are looking forward to filling our streets again for late-night shopping and celebrating the start of the Christmas period!

Amwell End, High Street, Baldock Street, Church Street, East Street and West Street will be closed from 6pm to 10pm, and traffic diversions will be in place for all the festivities.


We have a limited number of stalls for indoor craft traders in the Ware Drill Hall selling a variety of present ideas, just in time for Christmas.

If you would like an inside stall, please find booking information HERE.


Tudor Square, located in the middle of the town, is home to the town’s local charities and clubs, putting on entertainment and food and drinks to help raise money for their activities.

There is also the turning on of the mighty horse-chestnut tree lights in Tudor Square at 7pm!

If you would like a stall in Tudor Square please find booking information HERE.



Many of our local shops stay open for the evening, so pop in and see if they have any treats or offers for the Christmas period.

Traders, food vendors and other local groups will be lining the pavements all the way along High Street and Baldock Street.

Thomas Birch's funfair will join us again in Amwell End.

If you would like a stall in the High Street please find booking information HERE.



More information will be provided here soon!

If you would like to be part of the entertainment line-up, please contact us to reserve a time slot.
