A traditional Christmas street fair takes place in Corby Old Village on Thursday (November 27).

Local traders have organised a hog roast, roasted chesnuts, mulled wine and spiced ciders, children’s rides, santa’s grotto and traditional Polish treats.

Shops and cafes will also be open throughout the event, including the Good Bean, voted Northamptonshire Cafe of the Year 2014.

All proceeds will go towards supporting the Lakelands Hospice.

Leader of Corby Borough Council Cllr Tom Beattie said: “With the festive season just around the corner, what a great way to get people into the spirit of things!

“We are very happy to support our local businesses holding events for the public and it comes just before our own Christmas Market on James Ashworth Square – an exciting time of year for the people of Corby.

“Make sure you come along and bring the whole family to both events as they’re sure to be ones not to be missed.”

Gaye Hood, owner of local business Once Loved said she hopes that the event will be a terrific start to Christmas and will be continued annually.

High Street will be closed to vehicles from 3.30pm.
