HUNDREDS of people tucked into the food and drink at the eat:Christmas event in Taunton town centre on Saturday.

Hammet Street and Church Square were closed to traffic as people checked out the favourites on offer, including cheese, ales and pies, along with chocolates, gin and charcuterie.

The event was held in conjunction with the nearby St Mary Magdalene Church advent fair and open tower day.

There was also music, choirs and festive characters.
