BRIGHT winter sunshine and the sound of pipes greeted visitors to the fourth Benwick Dickensian Market on Saturday.
The market, officially opened by NE Cambs MP Steve Barclay, offered a variety of stalls and entertainments including a visit from Santa and the Pig Dyke Molly dancers.
Hurdy Gurdy entertainer Sidney Harbour and the Peterborough Highland Pipe Band performed to crowds and the Grymm Trooms Victorian travelling museum visited.
Stalls selling Victorian goodies, a hog roast and other refreshments were also available.
Mr Barclay said: “It is fantastic to see this community event back for another year. The Benwick Residents Association (event organisers) has done a fantastic job and have brought the community together.
