From Chewbacca to the cheeky Elf, the Didcot Festive Market featured a wealth of attractions on Sunday (December 3), with rain unable to dampen festive spirits.

This year's festive fair was held in the Market Place and Cornerstone, with stalls up to Pure Gym with the Broadways pub serving up hot food outside.

The event was organised by Didcot-born charity, Play2Give, an event that the founder, Andy Baker (born with a brain injury) helped to create four years ago with the team responsible for a number of town events, the Didcot Events group.

Together, the two organisations joined forces in 2020 to pull together a festive market to replace the now defunct street fair.

Organisers estimate over £2,500 was raised for Play2Give through the event, providing funds for Oxford Children's Hospital and other causes.

Mr Baker said: “Despite the weather everyone seemed to be in good spirits.

"Although it was smaller than previous years we are delighted to have helped bring some early festive cheer and spirit to the town whilst giving so much back by raising lots to put back into our community to help others in need.

“Our thanks go to Didcot Events for sponsoring the entire event, Doddle Homes, and of course to Cornerstone who helped to make the event sparkle even more and to all the volunteers.”
