This coming Thursday (December 17) many Brigg shops, and additional market stalls will be open between 6pm and 8.30 pm to enable you to carry out Christmas shopping in a great atmosphere.
Brigg will be alive with festive live music provided by the bands of Vale Academy and Sir John Nelthorpe who will be playing throughout the evening in the Market Place, Chapel Court and outside Boots. Also at these locations the Brigg Sixth Form Drama Group will be performing contemporary drama. The popular traditional Morris dancing group, The Tatterfoals, will also be performing during the night.
This is the first event after Brigg recently became a runner up in the National Great British High Street Competition. The Brigg Partnership hopes that the event will bring back the traditional aspect of family Christmas shopping. It will also be an opportunity to marvel at the new Christmas light displays through the town.
Alongside the entertainment there will be many traditional market stalls, Santa in the Heritage Centre above the Angel coffee area as well as shops providing enticing Christmas offers. There will be mulled wine and traditional hot roasted chestnuts too! You will also be able to watch the South American traditional Posado procession through the streets during the evening too.
It will be a great opportunity to visit the Tree of Life in Chapel Court and possibly put your remembrance card of a loved one on the tree.
It will also be the last time when you can enter the Children’s Christmas window competition and win great prizes as well as winning £50 by choosing the best window display. Then pop your entry into the Tourist Information Centre. All winners will be notified the following day to be awarded their prizes on Saturday, December 19 at the final Farmers' Market of the year by Baroness Redfern, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council.
