"All of the regular Friday traders will be there on 22nd December, for you to collect any orders and shop for last minute gifts. You will be able to take a selfie with a very excited ‘Buddy the Elf' and a festive ‘Mickey Mouse', soak up the Christmas atmosphere, have a festive bite to eat or a hot drink, collect your orders, and purchase some Christmas treats."
