The town’s popular Christmas Sparkle took place on Saturday, and included a continental market, Santa’s grotto and a funfair as well as a hog roast, chestnuts and mulled wine.

There was also live entertainment on stage and a Christmas tree display in St Mary’s Church, which all led up to the big lights switch-on at the end of the day.

The annual event was organised by Higham Ferrers Town Council in partnership with Higham Ferrers Tourism and St Mary’s Church.
