BAKEWELL was transformed into a winter wonderland as the town hosted its Christmas lights switch-on.

The twinkling of festive fairy lights sparked into life on Saturday, November 26 as hundreds of onlookers lined the streets to cheer.

It was the first time the event was spread across the weekend and was also designed to give traders a much-needed boost.
