Torrington transformed into Winter Wonderland

Torrington will be transformed into a winter wonderland on Sunday where magical fun and entertainment will be laid on for the whole family to enjoy.

A skating rink, falling ‘snow’, carols, and entertainment from Peter the Penguin will be on show all day with roasting chestnuts and mulled wine adding to the festive spirit.

Street dancers, a brass band and folk band will also be warming the atmosphere and the fair will provide traditional funfair rides for all.

Children will have the opportunity to visit Father Christmas in his grotto with Mother Christmas and their elves, and can even have a photograph with Santa as a keepsake of the day.
