THE Malls is again full of festive-themed stalls with the return of a Christmas fair.

The fair opened on November 22, with plenty of festive revellers coming along to search for the right gifts.

There are an array of stalls selling festive gifts, including specially carved personalised wooden pencils made from twigs, alongside food and drink outlets.

The fair will finish on January 6, but it is not the only festive activity happening in the month of December at The Malls.

On Saturday, the Acro Chaps will be performing an acrobatic display and there will be carols sung by the Salvation Army.

On Saturday, 9 December, The Ice People will demonstrate crystal ball juggling and the Basingstoke Concert Band will be performing carols.

Then, on December 17, a present wrapping service will be available from Shopmobility.
