Families are invited to enjoy some festive fun when a Sheffield park is transformed into a winter wonderland.

The Firth Park Festival Committee are putting the final touches to their annual Christmas celebration, which this year takes place on Sunday, December 7 from 1-5pm.

Attractions will include a variety of festive food and drink stalls.

Families will also be able to shop for presents at the various craft stalls as well as enjoy live music featuring the trumpet talents of John Barker.

For children, the Friends of Firth Park will be running their annual Santa’s Grotto along with a lantern-making workshop with the local Scout group.

Chris Fox, from the committee, said: “We’ve put a lot of effort into the event this year.

“We’ve got lots of local businesses and organisations involved and I’m sure it will be brilliant for everyone.”

Mr Fox hoped the festival would bring the people of Sheffield together after a year of community unrest in the surrounding area.

An event spokesman said: “A selection of fairground rides will offer thrills and spills for young people of all ages and at 5pm one of the best free firework displays in the area will mark the end of a fabulous day for the whole community in Firth Park.”

For 14 years the Firth Park Festival Committee has been organising events for the community.

Anyone interested in having a stall at the event is asked to contact the committee at firthparkfestival@googlemail.com
