Retford’s Christmas lights switch-on promises to be best yet

Retford’s festivities will begin next week with an exciting range of stalls, entertainments, and of course the Christmas lights in the town centre on Sunday, November 21.

Thursday, 11th November 2021, 3:18 pm

Market Square will become a fun-filled day of Christmas wonder from 10am to 6pm, with a festive market selling food and gifts, fairground rides, dance performances, live music, and crafts.

Children will have a chance to meet Santa in his grotto in the Town Hall from 12pm until 6pm.

Santa will be stepping away from the grotto for the grand switch-on at 5pm where one lucky child will be chosen at random from entries completed at the grotto to help.
