Hundreds of people went along to the annual Christmas lights switch on last Saturday.

A fun packed day included a host of attractions including a festive market, funfair, magical street animation, a giant snow globe and live stage show featuring Father Christmas, his helpers, host Raynor Pepper and popular singer Gavin Young.

The switch on event heralded the start of a Christmas trail running throughout the town centre which will continue until Christmas Eve.
