FROME continued to buzz on Saturday following the excitement of the night before with the streets filled with the chatter of people and the sound of music.

The Westway hosted a range of festive stalls including Rode Scouts selling sausages and burgers and a number of charities selling Christmas gifts and raising money for their good causes.

Santa was in his grotto listening to the Christmas wishes of dozens of children. Frome Library was the centre of events with a puppet show from the Soap Soap Theatre Company, a mind bending magician and local storyteller Tracey Winsor, captivating the imagination of the children clamouring for space in the library.

The Honk Monster musicians made a return visit to the town after their appearance centre stage prior to Jenson Button's arrival on Friday night.

On Saturday night, four historical novelists talked about their research and writing, conjuring up a Christmas spirit from the past, also in the library.

A candle lit carol and advent service rounded off the evening with the last of this year's Super Markets held in the town centre on Sunday.
