Customers visiting Newmarket market on Saturday are being invited to join its first Christmas Party.

The event, from 10am to 2.30pm, has been organised by Forest Heath District Council on behalf of the traders, to thank existing customers, and encourage new ones.

The day will include free children’s fairground rides, a Punch and Judy Show, clowns, and free chocolate coins for children. Big Al’s Jazz Band will also be performing Christmas songs throughout the day.

Cllr David Bowman, Forest Heath cabinet member for economic development and tourism, said: “We have some big plans to work with the market traders to help it grow and attract new shoppers in 2015.”

* There will also be a market in Newmarket on December 27.
