A busy three days has again put Bury St Edmunds on the map for Christmas and, as well as thousands of visitors who flocked to the town to enjoy the wide range of stalls during the Christmas Fayre, there was some intricate football skills on display at the Street Soccer Scene outside The Traverse yesterday lunchtime.

Stars from the FIFA Street EA Sports video game played out some amazing moves captured by our cameraman Ben Carmichael.

This was just one of the many entertainments for the crowds who arrived to enjoy crafts, food, shopping galore and music from talented bands and local schoolchildren.

And of course Santa was there along with his reindeer to thrill his eager young visitors.
