Winter Wonderland event will have plenty of seasonal sparkle

SOUTH Molton is gearing up to offer some seasonal sparkle with the town’s late night shopping extravaganza on Friday.

The annual Winter Wonderland event, organised by the South Molton Business Association (SMBA), promises plenty of entertainment and Christmas festivity.

The fun starts at 6pm with an illuminated angels and lantern parade from the infant school to the Square, where South Molton Town Band and two local choirs will then lead the carol singing around the Christmas tree.

Shops will be staying open late and the Pannier Market and Assembly Rooms will be packed with arts, crafts and plenty of culinary treats.

Younger visitors will be able to enjoy fair rides and entertainment, as well as meet Father Christmas in his grotto.

The event, now in its sixth year, will event feature a 70ft high illuminated hot air balloon hovering over the town Square, as well as a snow machine in the market.
