Celebrating Summer in the Streets

Packed with a range of exciting entertainment and activities, this year's programme promises to offer something for everyone.

Feel the sand between your toes with the return of Mansfield's famous beach, or clown around with the Circus Skills workshop. Decorate a hat, conquer the climbing wall, or take a look at some tricky cyclists. These are just some of the great attractions on offer in the Market Place during this festival of fun.
