Despite the dull weather, hundreds attended the Seaton Artisan Market’s Victorian Fayre.

Queen Victoria opened the event with Scrooge and friends and was welcomed by the Axe Valley Peddallers with their trusty Reindeer Tandem.

Seaton Primary School choir performed, followed by dancing chimney sweeps and parlour maids courtesy of JMDancefit.

Later, readings from A Christmas Carol took place and shoppers were able to try their hand at Victorian juggling and circus skills.
