Christmas is coming to Ashfield & Mansfield

September 28, 2018 9:41 am

Despite the fact that it’s only September, our thoughts are already turning to the festive period.  If you read on, you’ll find exactly why.  In short, there’s loads going on.   And, of course, that means sponsorship opportunities for businesses across Ashfield and Mansfield too.  And what’s more, this year is forecast to be bigger and better than ever.  So even more of your potential customers could literally see your name up in lights.

The C word…

Is it too early to talk about Christmas?  Whether you are already avidly planning your annual works do or not giving it a second thought until Bonfire Night, it will be with us sooner than you think.  Indeed, the Christmas lights events always attract big audiences in each of the town centres.  If it’s too early for you, bookmark this page and come back later.  But remember, it’s the early bird that catches the worm.

This is your opportunity to get involved and help Sutton, Kirkby or Hucknall celebrate Christmas.  Each town has their own tree and snow globe, together with a range of festive activities.  This should give you a taste of what’s on offer:

  • Sponsor a Christmas tree including the chance to switch on the lights – £1,000

Ice to see you in Mansfield

Mansfield always runs a spectacular Christmas lights switch-on events.  And, this year, it will be bigger and better than ever.  With an impressive investment of £140K, not only will the laser show feature for the second year running, but there will also be an ice rink and a month-long Christmas market.  On top of the other festive activities and events.  The big switch-on itself will be on 18 November.
