Christmas Event – 2nd & 3rd December
The Town Council has agreed a partnership with the Town’s Business Improvement District for a bigger and better Christmas event this year, on 2nd and 3rd December. Chris Smith, Leader of the Town Council, said “As well as the usual stalls selling Christmas fare, there will be entertainment on both the Saturday and Sunday. This will make the event the most spectacular so far.”
Local groups from schools and other organisations will entertain the crowds from the stage as in previous years. But there will also be other entertainment and decorations around the Town, in Rushton’s Yard, Mill Lane Mews and Huntingdon Court on both the Saturday and Sunday.
The Business Improvement District said, “We are very happy to work in partnership with the Town Council and take the lead for organising a fantastic event this Christmas.”
Chris Smith, the Leader of Ashby de la Zouch Town Council said: ”Unfortunately due to competing demands on its budget in 2023 the Town Council’s financial contribution to the event has been significantly reduced this year so the Town Council is very grateful for the partnership with the Business Improvement District whose additional funding and support has enabled a better event at less cost to the Council Tax payer. A win for everybody.”
Food Gusto, who have provided the stalls in previous years, will be returning to the Town for the usual event on the Bath Grounds over the spring bank holiday weekend – 25th and 26th May 2024.
