A giant snow slide, Christmas markets, a land train and an ice rink saw Chorley’s festive fun get into full swing at the weekend.

Thousands of visitors descended upon the town centre to celebrate the launch of this year’s attractions.

The four metre tall slide appeared on the Flat Iron car park, along with a range of festive markets.

At the official opening, Mayor of Chorley John Walker and MP Lindsay Hoyle had the first slide, helped with a push-off from Chorley Council leader Alistair Bradley, who also had a go.

Coun Peter Wilson, deputy leader of the council, said: “We have been looking forward to the arrival of the snow slide for many weeks now and it certainly hasn’t disappointed. The snow slide is extremely fun and the Christmas markets are fantastic, all the families and children that I’ve seen have all been having a brilliant time and we’ve had some extremely positive feedback.”

The snow slide and Christmas markets are open from 10am-8pm everyday except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, until January 5.
