BID Events

North Notts BID holds several events each year, encouraging footfall to the local towns.


  • Dinosaur Discovery Day – This is a fantastic family event that attracts large crowds into Worksop Old Market Square. The BID encourages local businesses and BID members to hold their own stalls, selling food, baked goods, and other items.
  • North Notts Food Fest – This annual event features celebrity chefs performing live cookery demonstrations. The day also includes food & drink stalls, entertainment, competitions and so much more! This is a FREE event, open to all. Holding a stall at this event is also free to BID members.
  • Party in The Square – This annual live music event typically includes tribute acts, local bands, and well-known musicians. This event attracts large numbers into the town centre and is FREE to attend. We encourage BID members to take stands to sell food & drink on the day.
  • Christmas Lights – North Notts BID help organise and sponsor the Christmas Lights events in Worksop, Retford, Harworth and Tuxford. These are fantastic family events, consisting of festive market stalls, delicious food and drink, free entertainment and of course, the beautiful lights being turned on to welcome in the Christmas period.
