The annual event is being held between 10am and 4pm, with a whole host of craft and food stalls, games, rides and street entertainment promising something for everyone.

Holbeach Town Band will be making a welcome return to the day, along with stilt walkers, clowns, Morris dancers and of course, Santa in his grotto.

There will also be a number of speciality suppliers selling produce such as cheeses, meats, chocolates, sweets and fudges, making it the ideal opportunity to stock up on festive favourites or to buy the perfect gift for the family foodie.

Children can enjoy a fairground organ and Punch and Judy, and there will be gifts galore, as well as hot food and drink to help keep you toasty.

Lisa Teague, from the Holbeach Christmas Fayre committee, said businesses in the High Street will add to the festive cheer with some fantastic Christmas window displays.

“It’s a day not to be missed, with something for absolutely everyone,” she said.

Visitors will also be able to benefit from free parking throughout the day, with extra parking available at the sixth form academy on Park Road, as well as at the Boston Road car park and Boxing Club premises.

On the day, the High Street will be closed from 6am to 6pm from QD Stores to Edinburgh Walk and from Church Street to the junction of Hallgate.
