The Melford Olde Christmas will take place in Hall Street, Long Melford, on Sunday, November 29. Among the attractions will be Santa with his sleigh, a snow machine, live reindeers, carol singers and a silver band. Visitors may even bump into the odd historical character as they peruse the stalls, which will be open from noon.

The day will conclude at dusk with an elf and fairy-themed lantern parade through the village culminating at Little Green where the Christmas lights will officially be switched on.

Event co-organiser Emma Butler Smith said: “We’ve had amazing donations and support from local businesses and residents. It has been really exciting to see Melford come together towards a single goal.”
