Christmas in Coalville returns to the town centre this Saturday - with a day of events planned in different venues.

The Christmas lights are due to be switched on at around 4pm.

But before that, a wide variety of family activities are planned.

North West Leicestershire District Council will be hoping for better weather this year.

Twelve months ago, the event had to be scaled down due to strong winds over that weekend.

This year's celebrations should go ahead as planned, although the current cost of living crisis has been taken into account.

The District Council also decided not to have any fireworks at this year's event.

The timetable of events in the town centre is as follows.
