Marlow High Street will close on December 2 for a late night Christmas shopping event.

It will be a chance for shoppers to look around a number of stalls and shops to a backdrop of great entertainment.

The event in the past has brought thousands of visitors to the town's high street but it was cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Father Christmas will be in back in his grotto offering presents for children and the chance to meet his hard-working live reindeer.

The Christmas fairy will be on stilts, making her way through the crowd alongside Peppa Pig, both looking to have their photo captured with as many children as possible.

Starting at 6pm, the evening hosted by Marlow Chamber will be kicked off with a carol service from primary school children.

Marlow FM will also be in attendance to add to the entertainment on the night.
