LIVE music will bring an extra touch of festive spirit to the traditional craft fairs held in Richmond Market Hall in the run-up to Christmas.

Richmond Live, which promotes live entertainment in the town, is providing musicians and singers for the three fairs on December 3, 10 and 17, from 10am to 4.30pm.

Markets officer Bill Oakey, who organises the events, said: "It will add a new dimension to the craft fairs, which are already popular with locals and visitors."

Craftspeople from throughout the area will have stalls at the event. Refreshments will also be available
