Thousands of people turned out to the Ipswich Christmas Market over the weekend – giving people the chance to stock up on early gifts or buy some early festive fare.

The four-day market dominated Queen Street and the top of Princes Street and brought fairground rides as well as traditional stalls.

There was also the chance of an early meeting with Father Christmas.

The event was second major boost for the town centre following last week’s big lights switch-on.
