Launceston's Magic Weekend - starts on Friday

This weekend in Launceston is quite rightly being dubbed 'Magic Weekend' with a huge amount to see and do.

Obviously it is the penultimate shopping weekend before Christmas and therefore time for most people to be finishing off their present buying. (Not me, obviously. I'll be leaving mine til the very last second.)

And so the weekend starts off with Late Night Shopping this Friday. Our special guest is Titan the Robot and I hear that Santa has recruited a very special team of reindeer this year from the Young Farmers.

There will be load of street stalls, music and events happening around the town and don't forget that many of the shops will be showcasing some very special gifts for your friends and family.

Parking in every car park in the town will be free from 4pm (that includes the multi-storey) and many of the roads in the town centre will be closed from about 5pm for the event.

On Saturday there will be a Christmas Market in the Square and Santa will be back again (busy chap).

And don't forget that you can park for free all day in the multi-storey (thanks to the town council for their support) and for just £1 all day in all the Cornwall Council car parks.

Then on Sunday there is the first ever Launceston Santa Run. It's not too late to enter for this (but you cannot enter on the day). But if you don't fancy running, walking or crawling in aid of Children's Hospice South West, then why not come along and give your support to the hundreds who will be taking part.

Don't forget that parking in all the town's car parks is always free on a Sunday.
