Video and Picture Gallery: Christmas Eve in Market Rasen

The magic of Christmas came to Market Rasen on Christmas Eve as Father Christmas made his traditional visit to the town.

This is the 65th year the Christmas Tree Committee has arranged this event and as always the queue of children waiting to have one final word with the man in red stretched around the market place and into King Street.

Every child, aged seven years and under, received a gift, some fruit and, to mark the 65th anniversary, a specially produced package of chocolates.
