Festive Night was held in candlelit venues across the village.

The event began with a carol service at St Andrew’s Church, with villagers then flooding onto the streets for an evening of festive treats and shopping.

There were a variety of stalls selling the unsual Christmas gifts, and shoppers were invited to indulge in a selection of seasonal refreshments.

Cheddar Youth Trust held a hog roast at The Bath Arms, and mince pies and mulled wine were served around the village.
