The open air event featured the carol service, live music to entertain the crowds, craft stalls, a tombola and lucky dip, a visit from Santa and much more.

A spokesman for the organisers said: "After a wet morning the sun came out for everyone to enjoy the craft stalls, Tombola, live music, mulled wine and mince pies, hot chestnuts plus Father Christmas, a lucky dip and face painting for children during the afternoon.
