Bawtry Christmas Time 2019

Hosting the event for the sixth year, the town’s retail association has been putting plans in place to attract even more visitors whilst retaining many favourites such as the unveiling of Womack’s Christmas Window, the fun fair rides and its craft and food stalls, in addition to the portfolio of shops, cafes and restaurants that grace the town.

“This is our sixth event and the team have been working hard to ensure that our 2019 event is full of festive cheer and has lots for all ages to enjoy,” said Ross Jarvie, Bawtry Retail Association. “Over forty stalls and catering outlets will cluster in the Market Place, Dower House Square, the Church Hall and the Courtyard and will be complemented by fairground rides supplied by Roger Tuby & Son Funfairs, including the return of the Ferris Wheel, kindly sponsored once again by Bawtry Town Council”.

“The event is made possible by the generous donations of our main sponsors One Call Insurance, the Bawtry Town Council and Wilfreda Beehive whose continued support is very much appreciated”. 

Live entertainment will feature throughout the day and will include the fabulous GP Princesses, performances by violinist Alexandra, The Dance Space, Bawtry Phoenix Young Players and a whole host more. Father Christmas will also be taking residency in the Church Hall along with his friendly elves.

Park and Ride and Parking Information

The first bus will be at 11:45am into town and the last return bus from Bawtry Market Place to Hudson's Yard is at 6:15pm.

Parking is free. The bus is free.
You will be able to make a voluntary donation on the bus if you wish but this is not compulsory!

Thanks to Wilfreda Beehive for providing their lovely big red bus again for us!


As the event takes place on the market place, ALL parking is off-limits in this area.

Bawtry MSG has kindly donated their car park for use for visitors. This is £2.50 for the duration of the event.

They are located behind CHINA ROSE Bawtry - So this is within walking distance of all the events!


We have a designated area for disabled parking at the library, spaces are very limited so we would advise heading down early for these spaces.

We know it is a very busy event and we do our best to alert people on the parking options available.

Where possible, we would advise taxis or using public transport as traffic will be exceptionally busy during the event.
