Liverpool Road was transformed into a Christmas wonderland between 6pm and 9pm when stallholders lined the street to showcase their festive goods.

It was a cheerful return to tradition after last year's event had to be cancelled because of coronavirus.

Those who visited the Markets were full of praise for the event and organisers Penwortham Town Council.

"Great night. Lovely Christmassy atmosphere," said one visitor. "Great stalls and the smaller businesses looked like they were thriving."

"It was a wonderful night, such a brilliant turn out," said another.

"Super to see such a fantastic turn out," added Stephen Murtagh. "Lots of stalls. Lots of food. Well done all involved in the planning."
