The switch on at the Peterborough One Retail Park - formally known as the Peterborough Garden Park - took place at the weekend, with scores of families turning up to start their Christmas celebrations.

There was music and dance from Saldance and the Divine Dance Company, along with arts and crafts.

Families were also able to get their skates on and have a go on the outdoor ice rink, which has been set up over the festive period.
