The event, which is hosted by the town’s retail association, will take place on Sunday 20th November 2016 between 12 noon and 6pm, and will be perfect for all members of the family – young and old alike.
“This is our third event and we are very proud that it has grown in size and stature on each occasion with this year shaping up to be simply fantastic,” said Rebecca Dickenson Bawtry Retail Association. “In addition to all our stalls and attractions most of the towns independent shops will be open giving visitors’ endless opportunities and inspiration for Christmas present shopping and home decoration.”
