The Winter Carnival is a major local event that attracts large numbers of visitors on the day. Roads through the town centre are closed to produce trading opportunities for charities, fundraisers, local crafts and traders.
There are approximately 125 pitches available. The 3m by 3m pitches are marked out across the site and are available to stallholders. Fairground rides and associated attractions take up the rest of the available town centre street space.
