NEWCASTLE Emlyn stepped back in time as its annual Victorian Night once again proved a huge hit.

The streets were packed and lined with stalls as the town welcomed visitors to its pre-Christmas event.

Mulled wine flowed and mice pies were on offer from all the local traders, while horse-drawn carriage rides up and down the main street proved very popular under the stunning Christmas light.

Santa’s grotto pulled in the youngsters and the annual Christmas tree festival at Holy Trinity Church was also launched, with the memory tree again taking centre stage, with people paying £1 to display a star in memory of a loved one.

Shop windows were decorated and many people got into the spirit of the evening by dressing up. The judges on the night were Mayor and Mayoress Cllr Alan and Jo Jones, along with Chief Inspector Christina Fraser.
