There will also be 35 wooden chalets at the fair, which will run on the first three weekends of December from 12pm to 830pm.

CEO John Minion said: “We are going to ensure the end of 2023 is going to be a fun packed one.

“There is so much to be enjoyed on the weekends in the run up to Christmas with live entertainers, music, food, and the chance to snap up Christmas presents.

“Both the Winter Illuminations and the Christmas Fair will be bigger and better than ever before. Everyone is in for a real treat!”
