Christmas is just around the corner so we take a look at Christmas light switch-ons, markets and events across the East Midlands!
As we write this post there are only 41 days, 09 hours, 4 minutes and 16 seconds until Christmas (not that we are counting…). With presents to buy, food to prepare and decorations to hang we thought that you should enjoy the festive period! So we have round up the best Christmas markets and events for you to check out in the East Midlands this winter. Now to get planning which ones to visit!
The Old Market Square, Nottingham is transformed into a Victorian Christmas market from the middle of November. With roasted chestnuts, an outdoor bar, rides, stalls and plenty of festive food on offer. The wonderland opens in the afternoon with the lights switch on at 5:30 pm. Why not even go for a skate around the Christmas tree on the open ice rink to really get in the spirit?
