A no­table night out in Nailsworth

Cotswold Life - - INSIDER’S GUIDE -

Nailsworth Noel – the town’s highly pop­u­lar start to Christ­mas shop­ping – will take place on the evening of Fri­day, Novem­ber 30.

This year’s Noel will be packed full of at­trac­tions, in­clud­ing Santa’s grotto; a fam­ily fun fair; a farmers’ market with food, drink and crafts; a clas­sic car show; Mr Brown’s steam engine; and a river of light il­lu­mi­nat­ing the town’s stream.

The fun be­gins when Mr and Mrs Claus lead a fes­tive pa­rade around the town – joined by chil­dren from Nailsworth Pri­mary School – start­ing from Sta­tion Road at 5pm.

Sarah Martin, vice chair of Nailsworth Cham­ber of Trade and Com­merce, is or­gan­is­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties. “This year is par­tic­u­larly spe­cial,” she said. “Traders have been through a tough time – in­clud­ing hav­ing to fight pro­pos­als to in­tro­duce park­ing charges. But what we’ve seen is just how strong the Nailsworth com­mu­nity re­ally is. Peo­ple have ral­lied round and lent their sup­port in a way that has hugely boosted morale. Clearly, our town cen­tre is tremen­dously val­ued.

“It’s al­ways a great evening, which show­cases the qual­ity, in­di­vid­u­al­ity and range of Nailsworth’s fan­tas­tic shop­ping.”
