Crowds turned out to enjoy the annual event as stalls and entertainers lined the streets.

Shirley Wright, of the Whittlesey Business Forum, said: “It was a great turn out and everybody had a brilliant evening.”

Entertaining were Molly dancing youngsters from New Road Primary School, young people from 20Twenty Productions, the Cambridgeshire Caledonian pipe band, and Peterborough Citadel Salvation Army band.

There was a Punch and Judy show, a fun fair, balloon modeller, Santa’s grotto and a display steam engine along with a range of different crafts and stalls.

The event is into its 20th year and is organised by the Whittlesey Business Forum along with the Lions, Round Table, Tangent, Ladysmith WI, the Straw bear committee and the Rotary Club.
