Honeysuckle, Crown Glass Shopping Centre’s stipy mascot, will flick the switch to illuminate the Christmas tree lights at 6pm.

Children keen to meet Santa can follow the sparkly footprints and signposts, provided by Nailsea Shedders, to his grotto in Clevedon Walk to let him know what they would like in their stockings this year.

There will be a pop-up photo shop at Number 65 High Street where families can pose for pictures and members of the youth club will also be giving out free hot chocolate from their new base on the first floor of the building.

Skating fans can take to the rink in Crown Glass Place, while walkabout clowns, balloon sellers and donkeys dressed as reindeer will be mingling with the crowds.

Stalls packed with gifts, food and art and crafts will line the High Street, which will close to traffic from 3-9pm.

Delicious treats and tipples can be found in Colliers Walk where food and drink specialists will serve a wide range of tantalising dishes including dinky donuts, spicy burgers, beer, cider and champagne.

People can take their bikes along to the mobile police unit to take advantage of the free bike-marking service and shops will open late so customers can stock up on festive goodies.

Entrance to the fair is 10p per person or revellers can buy a £1 lucky programme.

Children interested in taking part on the lantern parade can meet behind the library at 5.15pm to collect their free LED tea lights.
