Armed Forces Day and the Garden and Craft Shows attract thousands of visitors to the town but were cancelled in 2020 and this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic and Government restrictions.

Now Mansfield BID (Business Improvement District) says it is busy working to bring back the popular events in 2022.

BID’s marketing and events co-ordinator, Sue Rogers, 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 news comes after BID recently announced the annual I Love Mansfield Christmas Market is scheduled to take 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 in the town.

The chalets will be set up ready to open every day from 10am-5pm, with special late-night openings on Thursdays in the final run up to Christmas.
