The Big Switch 2018

 

Mansfield's market place played host to one of the biggest lights switch on events in the town's history on Sunday (Nov 18th). 

 

Thousands of families packed around the Bentinck Memorial to catch the free stage show put on by Mansfield District Council and its partners. 

 

There was a bit of something for everyone during the afternoon including live music, provided by local opera singer Alexandra Stenson, Gary Barlow tribute act Dan Hadfield and Nottinghamshire duo Brotherhood.

 

The crowds were also treated to an appearance from Peter Rabbit and the stars of this year's Palace Theatre Panto, Snow White & The Seven Dwalfs.

 

Alongside that there was also a laser show and when the lights were switched on just before 5 the event concluded with a fireworks spectacular. 

 

It marks the start of Christmas in Mansfield, which this year includes an 'I Love Mansfield' Christmas Market and for the first time ever an Ice Rink.

Meanwhile, here are some of the back stage photos our team took at the event!
