The Christmas event invented to give everyone a chance to do their Christmas shopping after they get home from work and local traders a chance to attract the sort of custom that might otherwise head elsewhere to look for shops that are open after they get home from work.
As usual the whole shopping experience will be augmented by fairground style attractions, carol singing choirs, a street market, food and drink of many varieties and the blog understands that Father Christmas himself has made the time to pop along with grotto and elves in tow.
Several areas will be closed off to normal traffic including Windsor Road (just between Central Road and the Stone Place entrance) and also several parking bays along central Road will be turned over to market traders, fun and entertainment.
Some of the local traders have been working very hard behind the scenes to make this all happen and no doubt it will be an amazing event as usual. Don't miss out!
Only very slightly off the topic: there will also be bike marking outside cyclepower from 3pm 'til 6pm on the same day (Friday 11th December) so you can take you bike along and get it marked and registered to help deter thieves - and help you get it back if it does get stolen! And then on to the big event after that!
