People from the village and beyond took part in the festivities last Friday on a cold winter’s night.

Children from Wrington Primary School sang on stage for people visiting the event, and they performed Christmas songs and carols to warm up the crowds.

Visitors could buy from stalls selling candles, trinkets, Christmas wreaths and jewellery from vendors on the night.

Also on sale was mulled wine, pig roast meat served inside sandwich rolls and the village’s beer while stall-holders promoted the new Wrington Beer festival.
