After the switch-on, guests including local primary school children, sang carols around the Christmas tree accompanied by Lostock Hall Junior Band.

There was also the chance to meet Father Christmas in his grotto and buy stocking fillers, with around 600 people throughout the day visiting market stalls in Hope Terrace.
