O come all ye faithful…

community carols 3…To Newark Market Place, where you’ll find everything from carols and choirs to Santas and shopping on Sunday 14 December…

The festive fun begins at 10am, when local traders set out their wares for the Christmas Market. Bag a bargain or two, find fabulous gifts and treats for family and friends – and even have them wrapped in The Buttermarket.

There’ll be plenty of opportunities for audience participation and the choir of Newark Business Club will be there too, singing their own unique version of The 12 Days of Christmas

No celebration of Christmas would be complete without Santa, of course. Or in this case lots of Santas, as local residents of all ages take part in the charity Santa Dash, racing around the Market Place to raise money for Beaumond House.

And in case you need an extra incentive to join in the fun, it’s just been announced that parking in Tolney Lane car parks will be FREE on Sunday 14 December (and on Saturday 13, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 December too)…
