Gallery: Christmas festivities in Baldock

CHRISTMAS festivities are well under way in Baldock as the town hosted a weekend of seasonal fun.

With an ice rink sponsored by The Comet, live music, fair rides and a festive market to enjoy, the High Street was lit up for Christmas and attracted a constant flow of visitors on both Saturday and Sunday,

Among the highlights were the Baldock Catholic Church Choir who sung Christmas carols and Letchworth GC-based band Mr Speaker, who played Yule Tide classics on Sunday.

Murray Fastier, Baldock’s town centre manager, said: “It was full of people for both days.

“For all concerned it was an excellent weekend - everyone seemed to have a great time.
