The dodgy hashtag for this Christmas festival has led to some highly amusing tweets

“One more sleep to #dickfest.”

ULVERSTON’S DICKENSIAN CHRISTMAS Festival is an annual festival dedicated to Charles Dickens that sees the town of Ulverston transformed into a Dickensian-era market.

They really go all out for it.

A few days ago, the festival’s official Twitter announced the official hashtag for the weekend and well…

Yep, they went with #dickfest.

As you can imagine, it’s led to some inadvertently amusing tweets.

“Sometimes I miss Cumbria a lot. Especially around the time of #DickFest”

“Wish I could be there for #dickfest”

“One more sleep until #dickfest”

Still rooms available for #dickfest!

Some people have expressed horror at the choice of hashtag

While others have cracked gags.

If you ask us, though, the festival knows exactly what it’s doing

Fine work, all.
