Every year the historic village of Cheddar comes alive with the magic of Christmas during its festive night and this year was no different.

The Mendip village was lit up with twinkling lights as choirs performed in the streets and a whole host of festive goodies and warm food and drinks were served to passers-by by community groups and businesses.

The event began with a carol service at St Andrew’s Church, in Church Street, followed 
by late night shopping and stalls.

A farmers’ market and fairground took over the Cliff Street car park and a land train made its way up and down Cheddar Gorge.

Despite the cold weather, there was not a cloud in the sky during the celebration, which took place on Friday.
