March Christmas Market
March town events are hosting the Christmas market celebrations in the town centre with the Christmas parade running between the market to the fountain along to Georges. There will be a mixture of stall's with homemade crafted gifts, a fun fair for children and a Santa grotto, the town centre will be closed to traffic so visitors can wander around safely, to take a look at all of the stalls and listen to a variety of music.
The town will be abuzz with traders and business selling everything from hot food to mulled wine, with live music from the market square and the willow fest open mic at Georges.
