Visitors flocked to Baldock’s annual Christmas Fair on Sunday, with three indoor venues and 60 stalls to entice them into the festive spirit.
Brandles students created signs to point families in the right direction, as the event spanned across St Mary's Church hall, the community centre and the Baldock Arts and Heritage Centre.
As well as the indoor festivities, the High Street was filled with a funfair, food court and a bar run by the Baldock Beer Festival committee.
Organisers Stuart Matthews, Katy Matthews, Alistair Willoughby and Tara Geere were really happy with the "amazing turnout".
Balstock festival founder G La Roche ran the music with a compare in Darren Woodhouse and then Simon the Snowman entertained the crowds until Father Christmas arrived in the Baldock Rotary sleigh to turn on the new lights sponsored by SRM security.
