Chairman of Midhurst Town Council Mark Purves said there was a great turnout and the horses were a particular hit with the crowds, who packed into North Street to enjoy the festive atmosphere.

He said: “This year’s street party was once again a great success thanks to the hard work of volunteers co-ordinated by the town council.”

Visitors enjoyed a snow machine and carols sung from a themed stage by all three local primary schools, as well as music from groups such as Midhurst Community Choir.

The Christmas tree lights in Market Square were once again switched on by Lord and Lady Cowdray.
