Wooler was the latest community to switch on its Christmas lights at an event with music and fireworks last night.
A sizeable crowd of residents turned out for a countdown to the Christmas tree in the centre of the north Northumberland village being lit up and then a fireworks display.
Angel Delight, a group of local ukulele players, played Christmas carols, and Santa paraded through the town thanks to Alnwick Lions.
Gazette photographer Jane Coltman was there to catch all the action from the festive event. You can buy a photo by clicking the link.
