Countdown to Christmas!

Mansfield starts its countdown to Christmas as the date for this year's Christmas light switch on is announced.

The big switch on will take place in Mansfield town centre on Sunday 18 November and is set to be even bigger and better than before!

It will include fun and festive activities for all the family from early afternoon, followed by a stage show in the Market Place which will be jam packed with family entertainment, live music and a spectacular fireworks display following the switching on of the lights.

Traditionally the event was held on a Thursday, but has been moved to a Sunday to make it easier for families to attend and take part in the celebrations. It has also meant that more activities can take place during the day to help get everyone in the festive spirit whilst they are doing their Christmas shopping.

The event is organised by the Mansfield Christmas Lights Committee, which includes Mansfield District Council, Mansfield BID, Four Seasons Shopping Centre, Mansfield 103.2 and the Chad, and our supporting partners 6 five 2s Taxis, The Hostess restaurant, Queen Elizabeth Trust and Bowrings Transport.

Michael Robinson, Head of Regeneration, Leisure and Marketing at Mansfield District Council said: "Planning is well underway for this year's event and there will be something for the entire family to enjoy.

"Watch this space for more details about who will be appearing on stage and make sure you put the date in your diary."
