Adult tickets for the Yulefest are almost sold out - we think it's unlikely any will be available on the door. With this in mind we've introduced a 'lite' ticket which allows access to the Christmas market, food stalls and comfy seating area but not the main band/bar and children's tents. It's ideal for people who just want to browse the stalls, have something tasty to eat then head home. You'll still get to hear the Stalbridge Singers (5-6pm) and Wincanton Silver Band (6-7pm) too. Lite tickets are £3 and will be available on the door only.
