Xmas 2013 What's On Guide

Following the success of a Sunday event last year, the 2013 Big Switch On will take place on Sunday 17 November from 12noon until 5pm.  The official start to Christmas celebrations in Mansfield is now looking for business sponsors.

There are a number of sponsorship opportunities for businesses who want to support the event whilst, at the same time, gaining some high profile publicity and great exposure.  A range of deals are available ranging from £500-£2,000.  For more details please download information about the packages or contact

Visitors to the town centre can expect to see a festive extravaganza including a seasonal film, music to get you in the Christmas spirit, a magical parade, fireworks and of course, the big man himself – Santa!  Work is well underway to install lights around the town centre to ensure that everyone who visits Mansfield experiences the joy of a fantastic light display.  The big switch on night also marks the start of late night shopping in the town centre with shops open late on Thursdays from 21 November.  View the full programme.  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.
