The Christmas light switch-on in Queens Square on Saturday attracted hundreds of people to enjoy a performance from the Rock Choir, visit stalls and do some late-night shopping.

Santa paid a visit to the seaside town to join a group of youngsters to help light up the Christmas tree and strung lights.

Stalls were set up to sell hot drinks, food and trinkets while the ambulance, fire and police services were also down to talk to people about their jobs during the festive season. Crowds enjoyed music and dance performances from 4pm before the main event.
