The Snow Fiesta Christmas Fayre comes to Stowmarket this weekend.

As well as the annual traditional Christmas market and festive music, families will have the chance to try ice skating.

A bouncy snow globe will also be on hand to keep the under 7’s entertained and the indoor market at the Mix will be worth a visit.

Stowmarket Town Council’s David Marsh said: “It’s going to be a fantastically festive day, a great chance to experience all that Stowmarket has to offer at this time of year and the chance to try a free session of ice skating.”

Once all the shopping is done, a visit to the Christmas Tree Festival at the Parish Church would be the perfect way to complement Snow Fiesta along with a warm up at the Christmas Crafts, at Stowmarket Library, and The Mix indoor craft market.
