Santa arrives in Mansfield

Santa and the stars of the local Cinderella pantomime will arrive at Mansfield's Christmas lights switch-on tonight - along with a unicorn-drawn pumpkin.

The parade, which travels along Westgate from St John Street to the entrance to the Four Seasons shopping centre, will start at 2pm.

Children's film The Polar Express will be screened in the market place.

Executive Mayor Tony Egginton said: "We've got lots of new and interesting things happening at The Big Switch On this year and we hope lots of people will come down to the town centre to celebrate with us."
