Santa Claus, Christmas lights and singer Lucy Allman were the main attractions in Bletchley on Sunday.
The centre was closed to traffic throughout the day, as thousands of visitors enjoyed a range of seasonal entertainment including more than 50 stalls, crafts, an ice rink, live music and a Santa’s grotto.
Entertainers included The Rock Choir, Lucy Allman, and a rendition of traditional carols and songs by St Andrew’s Church Choir. The traditional Lantern Parade then snaked its way through Fenny Stratford, with the Festive Road Samba Band, The Premier Academy, Knowles Hill Primary School, Water Hall School, Central Bletchley Junior Youth Club, the Lakes Estate Junior Youth Club and the Sir Herbert Leon Academy all taking part.
The procession ended with Santa himself switching on the lights in Stanier Square.
The event was organised by Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council.
