The street was transformed into a winter wonderland as stalls filled with Christmas goods lined the road.

Everything needed for the perfect Christmas could be picked up from the Christmas tree to mince pies and gifts for under the tree.

The Lost Elves and The Grinch caused mayhem around town whilst Too Many Cooks provided pop-up entertainment with festive songs and carols.

Father Christmas met children to his grotto in Harleston Information Plus as shops stayed open late to treat those who braved the cold but there was a fire breather on hand to try and warm-up them up.
