Armley Victorian Christmas Festival: Town Street to be transformed

Armley Town Street is set to be transformed with a Victorian Christmas Festival before the annual Christmas lights switch on.

The festival will take place on the afternoon of Saturday, 19 November and local residents are being urged to dress up in traditional Victorian fancy dress.

Shop owners are being encouraged to getting involved by dressing their windows in a festive way, and shoppers can vote for their favourite window.

There will be a stage which will be across Town Street, which will be closed and car free for the event. Organisers All Together Armley have arranged entertainment from local schools and musical groups between 1pm and 4pm. After 4pm the Breeze team will continue the entertainment in conjunction with Radio Aire.

Local elderly support group Armley Helping Hands will be running a tea tent in a large gazebo, there will be some small fairground rides and a number of stalls, including information stalls; festive crafts; bric-a-brac and food.


The day’s festivities will culminate with the switch-on of the Christmas lights and fireworks in the early evening.

Town Street will be closed from the junction of Wesley Road to the junction of Carr Crofts.

The day has been organised by local community group All Together Armley.
