TV star and novelist Julian Clary will open this year's Curtain Up Christmas Market in aid of Back Up.
Curtain Up Events was started in 2010, when a group of actors held a Christmas Market at St Mary Abbots Centre. Each year, the group nominates a different charity to raise funds for during the event.
Now celebrating its 6th year, the Christmas Market will have over 40 stalls offering collectables, art, bric-a-brac, books, jewellery, crafts, handbags, vintage clothing, cakes and much more.
The event will be opened by Julian Clary and refreshments will be provided by MasterChef semi-finalist Julia Gray. Additionally, a raffle will be drawn by a surprise celebrity.
Throughout the day, Back Up will also be running a wheelchair obstacle challenge. "We're delighted to be this year's charity," Louise Wright, Back Up's CEO, said. "The market is a great opportunity to raise awareness of spinal cord injury and raise funds to help more people who are paralysed every year."
