Santa Claus is coming to Gainsborough!

Date published: 13 November 2018

It is starting to get busy at this time of year for old St. Nick, but we’ve persuaded him to fly in to the Market Place on Saturday 1 December for a special visit.

For one day only, to help you get into the festive spirit children will be able to meet Santa who will be handing out a free gift at Gainsborough’s Christmas Market.

The Market Place will be bustling with activity, where there will be something for the whole family to enjoy including an array of stalls, entertainment, Christmas food and gifts, and children's rides.

There will also be an opportunity to meet real reindeers and see a giant snowman – so join us for the celebrations as there is plenty of festive fun to be had!

Cllr Sheila Bibb, Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee at West Lindsey District Council said: “The Christmas Market will have something for everyone and will be a fantastic way to get into the festive spirit. It is also a great opportunity to shop locally and grab some unique Christmas gifts!”

The event will be held in Gainsborough Market Place from 10am until 4pm.  

You can hold a stalls at the event for just £7 for charities and £10 for businesses.
