A feast of festive entertainment including an Abba tribute act is lined up for the return of the Christmas in Coalville celebration on Saturday 27 November.
The fun-filled day organised by North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) is packed with performances, activities and excitement, including the Christmas lights switch on, funfair rides and a spectacular fireworks display finale.
Headlining on stage will be Abba Fever – whose tribute performance will feature all the biggest hits by the Swedish pop group.
Further performances on stage will come from the Leicestershire Co-op Band and Belvoirdale Primary School choir who will also perform in the Belvoir Shopping Centre alongside entertainment from pantomime characters and the Sing Out Choir.
Live entertainment will also be available at Coalville’s new indoor market, Newmarket with music from local band, The Gastric Band.
Shoppers will enjoy a food, drink and craft market in the Belvoir Shopping Centre whilst being entertained by live music and street entertainers. Newmarket will also have a range of festively decorated stalls to explore.
Children will have the chance to see Santa’s Sleigh and visit his friendly carrot-munching reindeer. The festive attraction will also be in the town centre and at Newmarket on the following dates:
- Every Saturday in December
- 21, 22 and 23 December
Councillor, Tony Gillard, Portfolio Holder for Business at NWLDC, said: “After facing a challenging year last year, it will be great to see Coalville getting into the Christmas spirit and supporting our local businesses.
“We’ll have a plenty of activities in the town centre and at Newmarket for everyone to enjoy so I’d recommend saving the date in your diaries and joining us to celebrate the festivities!”
Parking in NWLDC car parks will be free every Saturday from Saturday 27 November to 18 December to encourage as many people as possible to visit the town centre.
