Winter is coming... Daventry will host its first-ever Winter Fayre next month in time for Christmas.

Entertainment on Saturday, December 8 will feature carousel rides, a Santa’s Grotto, donkey rides, a lantern parade, a Christmas tree festival and a carol service.

A Christmas market on High Street will see stalls selling Prosecco, gin and other refreshments, a hog roast, handmade jewellery, chutneys, jams and more.

Daventry Town Mayor, Cllr Lynn Jones, said: "The decision to rebrand the event from the Spirit of Christmas was not taken lightly.

"Given how much the event has grown, we wanted a name that really encompasses what it has to offer.

"With Daventry’s market town history, it seemed fitting really.

"It is a fun packed day with something for all the family.”

Daventry Town Council has sponsored several attractions on the day, which are free to enjoy.

Slots for Santa’s Grotto can be booked via the council's website.
