Christmas Market

The Victorian Festival of Christmas at Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard starts on November 27th and runs for the whole weekend. 

At 1st Choice High Level Cleaning & Maintenance we have been helping the team at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard care for and maintain the heritage site since 1991.

In the run up to the Victorian Festival of Christmas we help by organising the cleaning so as not to disrupt the preparations being made by the team onsite.

We work carefully around the exhibitors during set up, whilst continuing to deliver the high standards of cleaning that are expected.

This requires the use of specialist cleaning equipment in order not to damage the exhibits. Our specialist cleaning staff particularly enjoy this job and over the years have taken their families to the event.  

The event has a 'new-for-this-year' Magical Christmas Maze leading to a very special guest, a  Victorian Father Christmas, dressed in green, who will be stopping by to meet all well-behaved children.

Visitors enjoy exploring the snow-covered Dickensian streets in the awe-inspiring setting of the dockyard, which is home to the new Mary Rose Museum, HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860, HMS M.33, National Museum of the Royal Navy and Action Stations.

The popular Christmas Market, will be on as well as more Victorian characters and entertainment. - See more at:
