A touch of magic in Mansfield this Christmas

Santa and the stars of the Cinderella pantomime will arrive at The Big Switch On in style as magical unicorns pull a pumpkin carriage along Westgate.

The parade, which travels along Westgate from St John Street to the entrance to the Four Seasons shopping centre, will start at 2pm. This forms part of The Big Switch On event which takes place on Sunday 17 November in Mansfield town centre. Other attractions on the day include craft workshops in the Four Seasons shopping centre, a Christmas concert on Queen Street and screening of The Polar Express in the market place.

The day will finish off with a live stage show from 3.30pm until 5pm in the market place featuring the Ghost Academy band and the internationally renowned Cantamus Girl’s Choir.

A dedicated viewing area for wheelchair users will be available at the parade and the main stage show. To book a place, call 01623 463 733. Places must be booked in advance and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The Big Switch On night marks the start of late night shopping in the town centre with shops open late on Thursdays from 21 November.

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

Executive Mayor Tony Egginton said: “We’ve got lots of new and interesting things happening at The Big Switch On this year and we hope lots of people will come down to the town centre to celebrate with us.”
