Donkeys dressed as reindeers, hot roast chestnuts and a visit from Santa added to the festive cheer as Stalham hosted its annual Christmas street fair.

The High Street was closed off to cars for this afternoon’s festivities as visitors, shoppers and families got into the yuletide spirit, and enjoyed the entertainment on offer.

Singer Marc James delighted the crowds as he sang traditional carols and Christmas tunes, and was later joined by members of the Stalham singers, while fairground rides whizzed round and 47 decorated Christmas trees twinkled along the town’s main thoroughfare.

Esther Curson, a volunteer organiser of the street fair, said it had been a “beautiful” afternoon and everyone had a “lovely” time - with the hot roast chestnuts among a highlight of the tasty treats on offer.

“The idea is to get the community all involved, to put something on for their enjoyment and to bring something for the children as well,” she said.

Shops were also open late and scores of people entered the bumper raffle, which featured dozens of prizes.

Mrs Curson, who has been involved with the street fair for 10 years, added: “This is one of the best ones we have done, it was absolutely brilliant.”

Stalham holds to annual street fairs at Christmas and in May.
