Gerrards Cross truly threw its weight behind Christmas this year with a massive town festival.

The annual holiday event saw Santa visit on his sleigh as he spread the festive cheer with his little elves on Wednesday (December 7) to begin the festive season.

And the Gerrards Cross library go in on the action, raising money for a tombola and hosting the Curiosity Concert band.

Running from 6pm until 8.30pm in Packhorse Road, Station Road and Oak End Way there was a host of late night shopping, handmade goods, food and drink, a fun fair made available, along with lots of choirs to boost your Christmas spirit.

It was organised by the Rotary Clubs of Gerrards Cross, Chalfont St Peter and Misbourne Matins and the town council.
