Ashwell at Christmas took place in the village at the weekend, featuring a fair at St Mary’s Church and the Winter Wonderland experience for families.
Winter Wonderland saw the United Reformed Church host Santa and one of his elves in his grotto - and there were loads of games and crafts to occupy the younger crowd both before meeting the man himself.
The Christmas Fair saw St Mary's Church transformed into a festive market for stallholders selling their own creations and unique items that make wonderful gifts for the holidays.
Stallholders sold their artwork, clothes, cushions, woodwork, cards, a huge variety of edible treats and more.
Live carol singing throughout the event created a truly festive mood and the mulled wine stall meant there was a Christmassy scent in the air.
The Christmas Fair is run by the church to raise funds for the church itself and the church's restoration fund.
