The Christmas lights throughout the town and the lights on the crib and Christmas trees outside the Town Hall were switched on during a fabulous night of music and fun and even a visit from Olaf from the film “Frozen”, who appeared with teenage singer Grace O’Malley who was again the star of the show as her beautiful voice put everyone in the Christmas spirit.

There was a Christmas market, stalls and rides during the event arranged by Padiham Town Council.
