Live music performers will include Joe Aiken, Groovapolitan, Ramblers Celidh Band, Ellen Fairey and carol singing from local school children to get you in the Christmas Spirit.

As always, Park Radio will be hosting the event and keeping you informed from start to finish while playing the festive tunes.

There will be plenty of seasonal things to eat and drink too available during the event.
