Shrewsbury named in UK's top festive towns

As the season of tinsel and turkey approaches, many of us will already have started booking tickets for our favourite festive events including carol concerts, pantomimes and visits to old Saint Nick himself, and it seems some places really go all out when it comes to celebrating Christmas.

TicketSource has been sifting through its data to find out where you can find the biggest festive fans in the UK, those who attend Christmas events in droves and find any opportunity to celebrate the season of goodwill.

Topping the places which go all out on the mince pies and mistletoe is Crewe, followed by York, Falkirk, Cardiff and others.

But, it's no wonder Shrewsbury made the top 20, with our host of ever-popular events including Christmas Light Switch OnSanta's GrottoCarols in the Square and many more.
