But be sure to get there early – stalls open at 6pm and close when carols start at 7.45pm.

If you don’t bring a picnic with you, the PnP food truck will be serving up a yummy range of options to tuck into, but be warned, come hungry for these! On the menu are king-size burgers, festive gammon rolls, and as a veggie option, a tasty mushroom and brie burger with cranberry sauce.
