Town to celebrate

CHRISTmas will come early next weekend with a flurry of festive treats organised in Bakewell.

The town will be holding its traditional Christmas market over Saturday and Sunday, when there will be street entertainment from the Bakewell Silver Band, a nativity, carol singing, mince pies, mulled wine, hot chestnuts, and the switching on of the lights by Mickey Mouse and Tigger.

A beer festival is being organised, while Santa will be dropping in to speak with the youngsters.

The celebrations begin at 9am on the Saturday, November 26.
