The event, which has been kindly sponsored by Bawtry Town Council, China Rose and Bawtry Pub Watch,  will see a record number of craft, gift and food stalls, fun fair rides, a programme of live musical entertainment, the fabulous GP Princesses, animals from Equine Dreams of Bawtry, a visit from Father Christmas and the legendary Womacks of Bawtry Christmas Window display in addition to the portfolio of wonderful independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants that grace the town.

“All our businesses are looking forward to the entire festive period, but this day holds a special place in all our hearts,” said Ross Jarvie, Bawtry Retail Association. “It’s always a fantastic festive atmosphere and we shall look forward to welcoming residents and visitors alike.”
