Weather permitting there will also be live music.

There is also be a Book of Remembrance at The Tourist Information Centre (in the Buttercross) until January 5th for those who want to record an entry for a loved one in addition to placing a memory card on the tree.
All monies raised will be donated to the Carers’ Support Centre in Brigg who touch the lives of many local individuals and families during difficult times, and to the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight – a charity run by Rosa in Brigg, which helps children suffering from a serious muscle wasting condition and supports local families.
