christmas bridgford

On Saturday 2 December the Christmas lights will be switched on in West Bridgford. This year’s event will be a jam packed day of festive fun for the whole family on both Central Avenue and Gordon Square, featuring entertainment from local singers and bands, a children’s fairground, street theatre entertainers, santa’s grotto and a free mini ice rink.

There’ll also be a busy market on the Croquet Lawn offering a range of Christmas gifts, crafts, novelties, and festive food. As well as showcasing a great range of independent local businesses guest traders will be visiting the market from Italy, Slovakia and Poland as part of the YouNG Goes Euro Market, an initiative to support young entrepreneurs develop business skills.

All this action leads up to the highlight of the day, the light switch on at 5pm which is being led by Gem at breakfast’s Jo and Sparky and The Mayor of Rushcliffe, followed by a firework finale. Get your skates on to join in the fun!
