Wrington's annual Dickensian Fair drew a large crowd to the village on Friday evening.

The Christmas event is always one of the most popular events in the village calendar and 2017 proved to be no exception.

Beautifully decorated market stalls were open which allowed visitors to pick up Christmas gifts, and Yeo Moor Explorer Scouts sold sweet treats to raise funds for a trip to Switzerland.

The hot food stands unsurprisingly did a roaring trade too on what was a chilly night.

There were some excellent entertainment performances put on as well, with pupils from Wrington Primary School providing a festive musical backdrop to proceedings.

A few people dressed up in Victorian clothes as well to add an extra dimension to the festivities.
