Hundreds head along to the Woodbridge Christmas Street Fair, to pick up unusual presents and enjoy some festive entertainment this weekend.

The event, held on Sunday, December 2, was celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Organisers Choose Woodbridge hailed it as the “biggest it has ever been”.

As well as covering Church Street and the Thoroughfare, this year’s fair also extended to Quay Street for the first time.

Stalls included local crafts ranging from soap, clothing and jewellery, as well as creations from chocolatiers and cake makers.

Carol singers and Christmas music added to the atmosphere, with members of the Springfield Follies singing. The event was another boost for the town, coming just weeks after the Thoroughfare won second place in the England category of the Great British High Street Awards.

There were also varied activities for children, including a merry-go-round.

Chair of Choose Woodbridge, James Lightfoot said: “The Street Fair was excellent. Tim Fincham organised it brilliantly. Colour, variety, food and drink. Plus music and a Merry-go-round which my grandchildren loved.”
