The live music came from Christ The King Primary School’s carol-singing pupils, saxophonist Ross Munro, Tony Mac and Furious Styles.

There was also an Elf Workshop and Santa Experience hosted by Krafty Cow Tea Room, where children were entertained by an hour-long session with ‘Festive Story Time’, a Christmas craft session and a visit to Father Christmas in the Grotto

Landmark facilities manager, Liz Wilkinson, said: “Thank you to everybody who came down on the day and supported Burnley Christmas Festival; and to all our sponsors who made it possible.

“It was nice to see so many people getting into the Christmas spirit.”
