Stowmarket Town Council is looking to bring "cheer and happiness" to the town this November with a Christmas Fayre and the return of the popular Christmas Tree Festival.
Among the festive attractions at the new Christmas Fayre, which will take place on Sunday, November 28, will be an ice rink, merry-go-round and carol singers.
Children will also be able to meet Father Christmas and even feed his real life reindeers at the Museum of East Anglian Life.
In the town centre families will be able to enjoy festive storytelling at the John Peel Centre and the Regal cinema in Ipswich Street will be showing classic Christmas films.
As well as the fayre which will run from 10.30am - 5pm, the famous Stowmarket Christmas Tree Festival will also be back for 2021 taking place at St Peter and St Mary's Church.
