Sowerby Bridge was aglow with festive spirit as hundreds of people packed into the town to enjoy its Christmas market.

Organised by Totally Locally, the market was a winter wonderland of fantastic stalls stacked with treats.

And there was excitement for young and old alike as Father Christmas and his reindeers made a special trip from the North Pole for the day.

Totally Locally said: “A huge thank you to everyone who made it down to the Totally Locally Christmas Market, making it a huge success once again.

“It can’t go without mentioning what amazing stalls we had this year, we appreciate the efforts of everyone who braved the cold in the early hours to set up, plus to all the weekly stall holders who continue to stock a great range every week.”

The aim of Totally Locally, which began in Calderdale, is to create strong, vibrant towns, with thriving independent businesses and shops at their hearts.
