A JAM-packed festive event is taking place in Berkeley next week. 

Christmas at Berkeley is returning for its second year with a light-switch on, carol singing, festive donkeys and a lantern parade on Friday, December 1. 
Father Christmas will be handing out presents and there will be live performances from children's entertainers Chris P Tee and Cheeky Chops. 
All shops and cafes in the town will also be open and there will also be more than 30 craft stalls.

Money is being raised for four local charities including SARA, Berkeley Community  Swimming Pool, Edward Jenner Museum and Berkeley Library.
