Late night shopping fun in Uckfield

Shoppers who came to a late night opening event in Uckfield on Friday were able to share in a hog roast and enjoy roasted chestnuts, mulled wine and mince pies. 

Father Christmas chatted to children in his sleigh outside Bridge Cottage and the Tardis could be found in Queen Elizabeth Gardens taking travellers back in time to a traditional nativity scene.

Children from local schools sang on a High Street stage and shop staff wore fancy dress.

Thanks to Ron Hill for these photographs.
