An annual Christmas event that takes place in the picturesque market town of Bawtry, near Doncaster, is set to draw even more visitors this year with an even bigger and brighter event on Sunday 24th November 2019 from 12 noon to 6pm.
Hosting the event for the sixth year, the town’s retail association has been putting plans in place to attract even more visitors whilst retaining many favourites such as the unveiling of Womack’s Christmas Window, the fun fair rides and its craft and food stalls, in addition to the portfolio of shops, cafes and restaurants that grace the town.
“This is our sixth event and the team have been working hard to ensure that our Bawtry Christmas Time 2019 event is full of festive cheer and has lots for all ages to enjoy,” said Ross Jarvie, Bawtry Retail Association. “Over forty stalls and catering outlets will cluster in the Market Place, Dower House Square, the Church Hall and the Courtyard and will be complemented by fairground rides supplied by Roger Tuby & Son Funfairs, including the return of the Ferris Wheel, kindly sponsored once again by Bawtry Town Council”.
Live entertainment will feature throughout the day and will include the fabulous GP Princesses, performances by violinist Alexandra, The Dance Space, Bawtry Phoenix Young Players and a whole host more. Father Christmas will also be taking residency in the Church Hall along with his friendly elves.
“There is added poignancy to this year’s event too as a very much-loved character of Bawtry and one of the original members of the Christmas Event steering group, Jackie Strickland, passed away in June of this year,” said Ross. “One of her key roles was co-ordinating all the stalls for the event and, in her honour, we will be awarding rosettes to the ‘Best Dressed Stalls’ on the day which we are delighted will be judged by her husband Rev Jonathan Strickland”.
It is strongly advised to make any restaurant bookings early in advance due to the number of visitors that typically flock to the event.
There will be a free park and ride bus service courtesy of Wilfreda Beehive available from Hudson’s Yard and ample paid parking at the Memorial Sports Ground.
