The two-day Christmas spectacle includes a laser light show and a wide range of free activities for all the family to enjoy.

This includes nostalgic vintage fairground rides and amazing performances from the cast of Jack and the Beanstalk, which will take place at the Trinity Arts Centre.

The festival will take place in Gainsborough Town Centre on Friday, November 17, and Saturday, November 18. There will also be a Food, Drink and Gift Market across Market Street and Market Place on both days. Plus a Coconut Shy for families to have a go at winning some small prizes for just £1 per go!
