Many enjoyed the activities in the town centre after visiting the food festival which was taking place at the livestock market.

The market once again featured a stunning display of classic and vintage cars and motorbikes in Market Place.

There were lots of stalls, giving an opportunity for early Christmas shopping, and families enjoyed trips on a mini steam train in Nottingham Street.

People also enjoyed dancing to the music of the 1950s and 1960s to create a real carnival atmosphere.

Sharon Brown, one of the main organisers, said: “We had a fabulous turnout of 64 traders and they all kept a smile on their faces throughout the day.

“People enjoyed the cars and bikes and the dancers and the miniature train was a success.”

The last vintage craft market of the year will be on Sunday November 7.
