Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Communities and Climate Change Cllr Abby Brennan said: “We can’t wait to welcome local live music groups and performers as part of what promises to be a wonderful way to start the festive season.

“We know how much local people love coming to see their friends or loved ones perform and giving them support or enjoy seeing new acts and entertainment as part of a day of fun-filled activities and highlights. 

“Come on down to the food and gift market from 10am and then enjoy the music and performances before the lights turn on at 5pm and we enjoy the low noise fireworks show.”

The food and gift market will showcase a selection of the region’s and Borough’s finest designers and producers, offering a chance to buy a range of seasonal treats to put a smile on the face of a friend or loved one.

All the fun leads to the streets being illuminated with thousands of sparkling lights with the low noise but no less spectacular fireworks finale.

That’s in line with the Council’s wider environmental priorities to protect those affected by louder fireworks. It will also operate the event in line with any central government guidelines on COVID-19 and more comfortably distanced features and stalls to allow more social distance for event goers. 

For any questions on the event please email

Central Avenue will be closed to buses and traffic from 6pm on Friday 26 November  in preparation for the event and reopen at 9pm on Saturday 27 November .
