Families got into the Christmas spirit and celebrated the holidays with a festive market at The Plough Inn in Wrington.

Children were entertained by puppet shows while adults could browse through stallholders' trinkets at the event.

Handmade wooden reindeer, wreaths made out of wine bottle corks and table decorations were on sale, as well as colourful paintings and winter plants.

People could also buy mulled wine and cider and be entertained by the Congresbury Brass band, which put visitors in the festive mood.

A spokesman for the fair said: "After days of cold and wet weather, it was a relief to have an almost perfect evening for this year's fair."

People praised the event on social media and said they had a 'fantastic evening' and thanked those who 'made it so special'.
