Wedmore by Candlelight returns to the area on December 12 and this year is set to be a fun-filled event.

The Snow Ice Queen and Jack Frost will appear on stilts and entertain crowds in The Borough and Church Street and a juggler dressed in silver will be wowing youngsters with his crazy tricks.

Many of the shops in the village will be open late for shoppers to bag a Christmas bargain or a perfect present for someone special.
