Photos: Thousands of people enjoy Harborough's Christmas Fayre

Here are Andrew Carpenter's photos of the event

Thousands of people packed into Market Harborough town centre to enjoy the Christmas Fayre on Friday night.

Temperatures plunged but it stayed dry as wrapped-up families from all over Market Harborough and surrounding villages crowded into the town for the traditional late-night shopping spectacular.

Stallholders selling everything from that special Christmas gift to food and drink rammed the raucous High Street as the town’s stores did a roaring trade.

The event was organised once again by the dedicated Market Harborough Christmas Fayre committee.

Hard-working local organisations and charities such as the Lions were out in force while children loved the frills and thrills of the fairground in the Commons car park near Tesco’s.
