Join an annual Christmas extravaganza in the heart of Whittlesey with fun fair rides, face painting, steam engine and festive games.

Whittlesey Mayor, Alex Miscandlon, will open the event at 5pm on Friday December 11.

All the action is centred on the market square and will showcase a feast of family fun including a Punch and Judy show and children’s fairground rides.

Whittlesey Christian Church will be offering face painting, there will be a steam engine and Thursford organ as well as plans for children to climb aboard the town’s fire engine.

Many local charities will be offering Christmas games and goods to raise much needed funds while helping with some festive late night shopping.

Father Christmas is coming along with thanks to Whittlesey Round Table in a grotto, specially created by Whittlesey Tangent and Ladies Circle.

There will also be New Road Molly, 20Twenty Productions choir and Cambridgeshire Caledonian Pipe Band.
