TAKE a step back in time at the annual Victorian Evening in Newcastle Emlyn this week.

Chestnuts will be roasting on stalls along the street, mulled wine will be sipped in all the shops and there will be plenty of mince pies to enjoy at the event tomorrow night (Wednesday, December 6) from 4.30pm.

Shop owners will stay open late and embrace the Victorian theme by donning their best costumes and decorating their premises.

Jill Sutton, chairman of Newcastle Emlyn Traders, said: “The event has been going for at least 25 years and is welcomed by both the traders and our customers.

“The atmosphere is fantastic, The event is now firmly established and promises to be another great night and signals very much that the countdown to Christmas has started.”

Throughout the night there will be horse and cart rides up and down the main street, prizes on offer for the best dressed Victorian outfit, Santa’s grotto, Trinity Church Christmas tree event and street stalls.
