Mansfield District Council has launched its annual Summer in the Streets programme - and this year, the summer long beach party is the focus of the free family entertainment.
The beach party, a big hit last year, will run for five weeks and include a giant sand play area and family fairground rides, transforming the Market Place.
And look out for special dates when additional entertainers will be in town.
The biggest event of the programme is Party in the Park at Titchfield Park on Saturday 6th August.
This year it features Gareth Gates with support from Beth McCann’s professional ‘Best of the Brits’ tribute act and a specially selected line-up of local bands and singers.
The event opens at 12noon and closes at 9pm and also features children’s entertainment, including fairground rides, crazy golf, archery, donkey rides and face painting.
Emma Sowter, Mansfield District Council’s Events and Promotions Co-ordinator said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s programme of events which we hope will really bring the seaside fun into the heart of Mansfield. It will be a real treat for all the family and of course, it’s free”
