Live music will provide the back drop for the event, organised by the town council, which will launch the town's Christmas festivities.

The fair will open from 3pm until 8pm with primary school children invited to decorate Christmas trees and take part in a lantern parade.

The main Christmas tree, in The Strand, will have its lights switched on and there will be fireworks to mark the occasion.
