THE snow may be falling outside but plenty of people are finding ways to enjoy themselves in the white stuff this festive season.

Despite the treacherous weather on Saturday, Santa, two of his mischievous elves and a festive Fagin arrived in The Hub piazza to entertain crowds.

And there was no evil Twist to proceedings as dozens of people turned out to watch them entertain the crowds despite the covering of snow.

And just down the road in Bletchley people had their own taste of snow – even if it was artificial in places.

At Bletchley Park there was a two day Festival of Christmas on December 11 and 12 which was visited by over 12,000 people.

The free event included an ice rink and an artificial snow slope – if they had waited a week they would have been able to use the real stuff.

Culture and events officer for West Bletchley Council, Gennaro Corrado, said: “We are over the moon at the turn out for this free event, everything we had whether it be activity or attraction was a huge hit.

“Everyone involved had fun and Bletchley Park staff, volunteers and associated partners worked extremely hard to deliver a feel good community Christmas festival.”
