Carols were played around the Christmas tree by the Salvation Army, while the Choral Society sung in St Peter’s.

Visitors were able to enjoy a Christmas craft fair inside St Peter’s with mulled wine and mince pies, and festive stalls were situated in North Street, Kings Street, and Old Market Place.

The event on Friday, November 23, attracted large crowds eager to get into the Christmas spirit.

There was also a mobile synthetic ice skating rink for people to enjoy, along with an inflatable bouncy snow globe, a hand-tame owl, eliminator, bungee trampolines and swing chairs for children and various other fairground games.
