From 10am to 6pm on Saturday and until 4pm on Sunday, you can warm up with a mulled wine or feast on hot roasted chestnuts while enjoying a first taste of festive fun. Father Christmas will be in his Grotto nearby so it’s a perfect opportunity for the kids to tell him what they want.

Many of Lancashire’s finest local producers will be out in force, with foodstuffs for the Christmas table, original gift ideas, festive booze and more.

So do all your Christmas shopping while enjoying a real traditional atmosphere to the sound of sleigh bells and Christmas carols.
