A two-day Countryside Christmas Fair recorded its biggest event to date as about 8,000 visitors called in.

The Kirkley Hall event showcased products from more than 130 businesses, from handmade gifts and toys to regional foodstuffs.

Visitors could find festive fun at Santa’s Grotto, while fairground rides, a ferris wheel, face painting and arts and crafts workshops kept them entertained.

Admission also included entrance to the Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens, where the animals were just as enthralled with Dr Zig’s Extraordinary Bubbles as families were.

Events Manager Jenny Cairns said: “The Countryside Christmas Fair was a huge success.”
