Late Knight Shopping and Parade

This is one of our favourite events which helps everybody get into the real spirit of Christmas!    
Most of the shops and caterers stay open well into the evening. When it is good and dark the parade assembles at Castle Square and the torches are lit. The parade is led by our Jester, followed by numerous armoured knights carrying blazing torches. The parade proceeds through the town to the square. There will be medieval themed activities in and around the town throughout the event.
