Festive cheer was spread through Sutton on Saturday with the switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights and a seasonal market which included a host of activities for children.

Portland Square came alive from 10am-3pm with Santa in attendance, along with Elsa, Captain America and stilt walkers and a special snow globe.
