Prince Charming, Snow White and the Evil Queen spread some festive magic as Saturday's event saw a jam-packed stage line-up of performances, with the crowds having a chance to visit to Santa in his grotto, funfair rides, Christmas crafts, and food and drink stalls in the town centre.

Simone Russell, Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council's corporate director for housing and communities, said: "What a fantastic way to celebrate the first Christmas in the new-look White Lion Square!

"The weather was great, the market stalls were buzzing, the Campus West panto stars were a big hit, and it was wonderful to see so many people having such a great time.

"We think it was the busiest Christmas lights event we have ever had in Hatfield, so a big thank you to everyone who came!"
