Many of the town’s shops will also be opening for the event so you can finish - or even start - your Christmas shopping.

To add to the festive spirit there will be entertainment galore throughout the day including festive Punch and Judy shows, school choirs, Santa’s grotto, real reindeer and a children’s funfair.

Santa will then board his sleigh at the Town Hall before travelling onto Red Lion Square for the culmination of the event - the big lights switch-on at about 4.30pm.

Red Lion Square, St John’s Street, High Street, Ironmonger Street and Broad Street will be closed from 10pm on Saturday until midnight on Sunday. There will also be a no waiting order in place for Broad Street from midday on Saturday.
