West Bridgford Christmas Lights Switch on 2018

Bonfire Night is long gone, so that can only mean its time for the Christmas lights switch on! The annual West Bridgford Christmas lights switch on is taking place on Saturday 24th November 10am-6pm, sponsored by The Botanist.

Central Avenue, Gordon Road and Gordon Square will host an array of children’s fairground rides and activities, a food and gift market as well as festive theatre and live music. Many shops and cafes in this area will also be organising activities and events.

The YouNG Christmas Market will return for the second year on Gordon Square, featuring young entrepreneurs aged 13-21. In addition to stalls, there will be a free santa’s grotto, a christmas tree trail and performances from young musicians. For more information on the YouNG Christmas Market, click here.

Plumtree School will take the stage at 1:30pm, followed by The Tuneless Choir at 2:30pm, The Liberty Choir at 3:30pm and singer Katherine Dryden at 4pm. This leads up to the Christmas lights switch on at 5pm and big firework finale.

Don’t just head home after the finale! Visit one of the many bars or cafes in the town centre, including The Botanist who are hosting an after party.

Win tickets for West Bridgford Ginmas Festival

West Bridgford’s gin festival, which first took place in August, returns again on Saturday 24th November at Nottingham Rugby Football Club, Holme Road.

However, this time with a festive twist! Once again, there will be 36 gins to sample as well as mulled wine and sloe gin available to help get you merry. As well as a vast array of gins, there will be Christmas craft stalls, hot food and live music to enjoy- a great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done before the festive period!

Tickets are £12 each, which includes one free gin. However there will be a £5 fee on the day in order to use a poly-carbonate gin glass, which will be fully refunded upon the return of the glass at the end of the night. Tickets are available for the Saturday 5-11pm session, and can be bought here.

We’ve teamed up with the festival to give away two tickets for Saturday 24th November, 5-11pm.
