Mansfield BID, the team behind popular events that attract hundreds of visitors to Mansfield town centre, is already planning for their return in 2022.
As part of its work to support businesses in the town centre, the BID (Business Improvement District) usually arranges the Annual Armed Forces Day and also the Garden and Craft Shows.
The COVID 19 pandemic and Government restrictions put a stop to those in 2020 and this year, but BID Marketing & Events Co-ordinator Sue Rogers says planning is already under way to relaunch the events in 2022.
Sue said: “We know that people love Armed Forces Day, and the Garden and Craft Shows – you only have to see the faces of those who attend them to know how popular they are. It’s such a shame that they cannot go ahead this year, but the BID is already getting things in place for next year so they can make a welcome return to the calendar. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to ensure that they are a success and put Mansfield town centre on the map.”
Dates for the events will be confirmed later this year.
The BID has recently announced that the annual I Love Mansfield Christmas Market is scheduled to be taking place this year, with a number of businesses already putting their names down for a Christmas Chalet on West Gate.
Pencilled in to take place between Saturday, November 27 and Wednesday, December 22, the market is a highlight of the festive period.
The chalets will be set up ready to open every day from 10am to 5pm, with special late-night openings on Thursdays in the final run up to Christmas.
