Enjoy a free festive weekend at the Gainsborough Christmas Lights Festival with laser light shows and much more family fun!

Get into the festive spirit and head to Gainsborough for a weekend of Christmas celebrations at their Christmas Lights Festival this November. 

Embark on a nostalgic journey with a Vintage Carousel, test your strength at the Vintage High Striker, and enjoy a ride on the Vintage Swing Boats. Capture the perfect Christmassy moment inside a Giant Snow Globe, and be mesmerized by dazzling Laser Light Shows that will illuminate the evenings.

The entertainment doesn't stop there—experience the talent of local artists and bands on the Centre Stage, where a DJ will keep the festive vibes alive. Marvel at the skills of a Balloon Modeller, be amused by Comedy Elves, and watch LED Skaters twirl around, spreading the Christmas cheer.

As you walk through the festival, explore Food, Drink, and Gift Traders, and try your luck at the Coconut Shy. With FREE parking from 18:00 on Friday, November 17th, and all day Saturday, November 18th, in Council Owned Car Parks, this is a Christmas celebration you won't want to miss. Stay tuned for the official program release and make it a memorable, cost-free weekend with your loved ones!
