STONEHOUSE Goodwill Festival will have a pantomime theme this year, with prizes for the best-dressed children and traders.

The event, which gets underway at 2pm on Saturday in the High Street, will also see carol and drama performances from schools.

There will be a Santa's grotto, magician and balloon bender, a Punch and Judy show in the town hall, a fire engine and stalls.

Mayor Chris Brine will turn the lights on at 5.15pm.
