The magic of Christmas will cast its spell over Spalding on Saturday when the lights are turned on at around 5pm.

Santa and the newly appointed Flower Queen traditionally perform that duty but organisers have also lined up a day filled with singers, dancers and other entertainment centred in Hall Place, starting at 10am.

The day includes a Just For Fun dog show (11am), with entries £1 each, the 2016 Tulip Queen competition (noon), and the school choirs contest (2pm).

Finally, Father Christmas is due to arrive at Springfields in Spalding on Thursday (7pm) in a procession of live camels, kings and shepherds, marking the start of weekday late night shopping.
