CHRISTMAS ARRIVES IN NORTH NOTTS

Press Release: CHRISTMAS ARRIVES IN NORTH NOTTS WITH WORKSOP AND RETFORD LIGHTS SWITCH ON

THE FESTIVE season is officially underway following the traditional Christmas lights switch-on in Worksop and Retford last weekend (November 30 and December 1).

Hundreds of residents enjoyed the annual extravaganzas which saw both towns host seasonal markets, live music, and fairground rides.

The festivities will continue throughout December with even more special market events where shoppers can discover fantastic stocking fillers for those hard-to-buy-for friends and relatives.

The events are being delivered by North Notts BID in partnership with the Retford and Worksop business forums, with support from Bassetlaw District Council.

It fills us with great pride to see so many people supporting their local towns, and we’re looking forward to delivering a festive season to remember.”
