Ashby de la Zouch Town Council has confirmed the line up for the Christmas Fair weekend which will be held in the town centre.

Market Street and Brook Street will be closed off for two days while the festive celebrations take place.

The event returned last year as Covid restrictions were gradually relaxed - and it is back to being an annual event once more.

The Ashby Food Gusto Christmas Fair is being held on Saturday December 3 and Sunday, December 4.

And the fair is perfect for getting those final gifts for Christmas as well as sampling some of the food on offer at the same time.

Food and drink stalls, along with artisan crafters will be on hand with a selection of gift ideas, from bottled beer, original prints, aprons and tea-towels to handmade candles and Christmas wreaths.

There will also be a range of entertainment, including children's rides, a live music programme - and even Santa will be visiting.

Jacks of Frost will be performing on the Saturday at 12pm, 2pm & 3.30pm - you can come and grab a photo or selfie.

You can find the fun on Market Street in Ashby de la Zouch from 10.30am until 5pm on the Saturday and 10:30 am till 4.30pm on the Sunday.

Entry is free, and organisers are urging people to come down and support local and regional artisans as well as Ashby's vibrant shops and town traders.
