Newest Review: ... happen in September. And in December (Friday 14th this year) there is late night Christmas shopping, where all the shops open and there are stalls and games in the town centre. Then we come to Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, when the towns big event happens; Royal Shrovetide football.
