FIREWORKS EXTRAVAGANZA VICTORIAN STYLE AT BLISTS HILL
11th October 2011
Visitors will be able to enter Blists Hill at 6pm to see the town’s streets as they would have been in the 19th century. The shops, cottages and workshops will be open and visitors can talk to the ‘resident’ Victorians, dressed in the costume of the day, who will answer questions about life in the late 1800s. Blists Hill Victorian Town’s Canal Street is also sure to be a popular attraction, with its Sweet Shop and Fried Fish Dealers.
