Hundreds of people descended to Newark Market Place yesterday (Sunday) to see the switch-on of the town's Christmas lights.

Festive cheer was in abundance as visitor's enjoyed the live music, market stalls and fairground rides from 11am.

This year's event was on a smaller scale compared to previous years, with no fireworks due to covid.

The lights were switched on to great applause from the crowd at 5.45pm by Newark Town Mayor Lisa Geary and chairman of Newark and Sherwood District Council Penny Rainbow.
