Visit the Christmas Lights Switch On and Twilight Markets showcasing artists, handmade crafts, and Christmas delights. Get into the Festive spirit while you explore the local Town Centre and Twilight Market.
Each Christmas event brings street activities to support the town centres and rural settlements promoting healthier high streets and increase community spirit. Each event will have its own input to your local town through their local traders, walkabout entertainment, live music and draws many visitors to the town centres. There also might be a fan favourite of Santa coming to town!

This year we have a new simplified application process for past applicants that have applied for a market through BNL Productions in the last 6 months, this would have been Buskfest, UK Pipe Band Championships, Food & Cider Festival and Georgian Day. This is the short application form and will make things simpler for you to apply with a significantly shorter application form.
