Wadebridge was buzzing at the Christmas late night shopping event and fireworks last night.

The shops stayed open as late as they liked with shoppers taking advantage to complete their Christmas shopping, which will continue tonight.

There were choir and band performances, a Santa’s grotto and a European themed market along with fireworks in the evening.

The late night shopping weekend was organised by the Wadebridge and District Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber of Commerce chair, Adrian Jones said: “Wadebridge was buzzing last night.

“There were so many people having a good time.

“The fireworks were even better than last year.”

The community choir Voiceworks, the ladies barbershop group- Moor Harmony and the Wadebridge Male Voice Choir gave two performances each.

Time To Shine, a choir of four to eight-year-olds sang festive songs from the 70’s onwards.

There was a Santa’s grotto, tea-cup and saucer rides and a bungee run.

Alongside the extended shopping hours in local shops, there was a market in the town hall, which is open throughout the two-day event.

The event continues this evening with a Strictly Come Wadebridge dance performance from 4pm in Molesworth Street.

Local young person’s dance troupe, Brilliant Dance, is gearing up to bring flash-mob dancing to the Wadebridge pavements.

    The poster advertising this event didn't make clear that not ALL parking was free. I now have a £100 parking charge notice for using the Cattle Market car park without buying a ticket. Your poster circulating on Facebook just stated FREE parking, without any reference to the car parks where this applied, or perhaps more importantly, where it didn't! Not being residents of the town, we had no idea that the Cattle Market is privately managed and therefore normal charges applied. Not a good start to my family's Christmas celebrations - I spent money in the town last night, supported the collection after the fireworks, and now facing £100 penalty because of your blatantly misleading information - won't be frequenting Wadebridge for any other events any time soon ...
