Our little town of Ulverston has more to offer than Laurel and Hardy, many people work hard to arrange events and festivals throughout the year. We have a large carnival in July with a parade of floats, dancing girls, bands and things going on all day. Our lantern procession is a wonderful event featuring a river of light passing through the town and is the final event of our charter week. There is also a Dickesian festival and Christmas market at the end of November. These are just a few of the bigger festivals, there are lots more throughout the year. We’ll be talking about upcoming festivals in this section and hopefully giving you plenty of reasons to come and visit us in Ulverston.
