The town centre was packed for the annual event which saw two young twins and the oldest lady in the village push the button on the lights display.

The fun started in St Peter's Square with community carol singing by various local schools, followed by the arrival of Father Christmas.

Our video editor Habibur Rahman was at the celebrations and you can see his video from the night above.
