A school choir competition is being held on the Saturday and more than a dozen schools will be singing, dancing and entertaining from a stage in the town centre.

At 4pm comes the Christmas lights switch-on by Santa.

Christingle services are scheduled for Saturday in Hall Place and Sunday in The Crescent (3.30pm).

Anyone wanting a charity stall in The Crescent on the Sunday is asked to book as soon as possible.
