All of the traders reported a high rate of sales especially for some of the more unusual gift ideas located in the conservatories including craft jewellery, stained glass giftware, wooden toys, beauty products and leather ware to a unique selection of home accessories including mirrors, lamps and art.
A new addition to the 2008 festival was Santa's Grotto in the chq building which attracted 2,000 visits during the festival.
In addition to the great shopping visitors also enjoyed a variety of seasonal attractions.

And, to ensure a really festive atmosphere, carol singers and bands were on hand on selected days to perform a feel good selection of Christmas favourites.
