“Look out for the Victorian themed shop windows which greatly add to the atmosphere.

“And this year we are inviting anybody dressed in Victorian costume to join us in the parade down the High Street, led by a band, entertainers, and Father Christmas.”

The festival can be enjoyed next Monday, December 12, and Tuesday, December 13, from 6pm to 9pm.
