Coun John McNeill, who represents the Market Rasen ward, is delighted to welcome the Tail of Peter Rabbit to the town.

He said: “This is really exciting news for Market Rasen and for those who live in the local area.

"The Trinity Arts Centre’s new venture ‘Trinity on Tour’ is an excellent example of how we can bring arts, theatre and music to communities right across the district.

"So why not come along to support the family-fun event, so things like this can continue to happen around the district.”

"We'll certainly be giving it our all at Mill Road Park and we hope to see a huge crowd of Peter Rabbit fans, old and young alike, coming for an afternoon of ‘rabbity’ fun and frolics.
