The show must go on as the saying goes, even if it means a last-minute change of plan due to the weather.

Hunstanton’s annual Christmas Cracker event on Sunday had to be brought indoors due to the driving rain and strong gusts of wind.

Stalls and some activities were moved into the town hall and the light switching  also had to be moved indoors.

One of the organisers, Barbara Sproule, described he weather for the event as “pretty horrendous.”

She said: “It went really well considering the weather was against us.

“I would say there was around 50 to 60 children who got involved with the treasure hunt around the town.

“It’s amazing the amount of support we had from the parents.”

Characters Olaf and Elsa from the film Frozen also made an appearance at the event, which proved to be popular with the younger generation.

And of course, the children were keen to see Father Christmas in his grotto.

“The atmosphere in the town was wonderful,” said Miss Sproule.

“It was a good team event and community spirit, event though we had a few less turn out due to the weather, it was a good turn out overall.”
