Around 80 different stalls gathered in Lavenham over the weekend for the village’s Christmas fair.
The event ran from the opening ceremony at 6pm on Friday through until 4pm yesterday.
As well as a large variety of craft and food stalls over the three days there was also live music from several performers.
This included singer/guitarist Peter Hepworth and the Lavenham Upbeat Contemporary Choir.
Donkey sleigh rides, a bouncy castle and vintage fairground rides were also on offer with children given the chance to visit Father Christmas in his grotto.

To coincide with the opening ceremony there was also late night shopping until 8.30pm and on Saturday afternoon after dark there was a guided lantern walk of the village.
Organisers hope the weekend would beat the success of last year’s event and encouraged visitors to dress up in traditional Dickensian clothing for the occasion, with a prize going to the person with the best costume.
