There will be lots of Christmas crafts for sale in the craft marquee and local bands, schools and community organisations will perform on the stage over the weekend.
Alongside this there will be plenty of free entertainment taking place sure to suit the whole family including face painting, balloon modellers, interactive craft stations, walkabout characters and much more.
The Bridewell will also host plenty of festive fun including Mrs Elf Storytelling on the Saturday from 2pm - 4pm, Mrs Claus storytelling on the Sunday from 2pm - 6pm and Santa will once again take up residence in his grotto there from 2pm-4.30pm on the Saturday and 2pm - 6pm on the Sunday.
This year’s light switch on will take place on Saturday during a spectacular Christmas themed street party on Broad Street. The street party will commence at 6.30pm and Santa will illuminate the town at 7.45pm. A spectacular fireworks display will then light up the night sky before the street party finishes at 8.30pm.
