A community silver band made people happy
A decorated stage & later there was falling snow
A comedy take on Scrooge
Choir Singers & Bell Ringers from the local community provided consistently decent quality music
The Town Crier always looks the part
Special christmas characters were good for adults and children
An organ grinder to add to the Victorian feel
Roast chestnuts & other festive food was available throughout the day and night
Live reindeer & ice sculptors were an unusual sight for many and well-loved
Traditional style swingboats were popular
Themed street performers provided amusement
Humbug!
The Shoppers Elf Service was a big hit with weary shoppers and quite a novelty
