Dereham Shopping Centre is set to host a Christmas lights switch-on event.
The centre, which is the area including Wright's Walk and the newly-established Ellenor Fenn Garden, is encouraging people to attend the festive event from 10am on Saturday, November 20.
Plenty of entertainment will be on offer for children, who will also get the opportunity to meet Father Christmas himself.
Locals and visitors alike can also enjoy live music and a makers market, with both indoor and outdoor stalls.
Free parking will be on offer at the adjacent car park run by landowner, Dencora.
Crafters have been hard at work decorating the Ellenor Fenn Garden, an eagerly-awaited pocket park which finally had its grand opening in September.
The shopping centre lights are due to be switched on between 3.30pm and 4pm.
Saturday's event is independent of Dereham's annual Christmas lights switch-on in the Market Place, which is set to take place on Sunday, November 28.
