For the first time, the town will host an official lights switch on, illuminating all parts of the town with a Christmas parade, kicking off from The Arts Centre on Church Street at 3.30pm.

Carol singers will then gather at the town cross, to wrap up the ceremony.

Organised by the Wymondham Town Team, the event will also feature a Santa's grotto in Whaston's Court, a fun fair, food and drink stalls and real life reindeer.

Festivities will begin at noon, with programmes available from a host of local shops and cafes.
