Final preparations are being made for Swaffham’s Christmas lights switch-on this weekend.

The lights will be turned on at 4.30pm, following a packed afternoon of festively-themed events and activities.

The Market Place will be full of stalls, while many surrounding shops will also be open.

Music will be provided by the Fakenham Town Band and other local schools and choirs, while characters from the smash hit film Frozen will also be entertaining the children.

And Father Christmas will be in his grotto in the Assembly Rooms from 2pm.

Free parking will be available in the Theatre Street and Station Street car parks, though Lynn Street will be closed on the western side of the Market Place from 6am.
