The Voice UK winner at market party

A spectacular open air party, headlined with a live performance from Kevin Simm, the Brit Award-winning Liberty X singer and winner of The Voice UK 2016, is to be held in Mansfield town centre.

Party On The Market takes place on July 9, and will also see Little Mix tribute band Little Fix, ABBA Fever, and disco, funk and soul band Ginny Brown and the Collective, playing live.

Organisers are hoping the free, family event, from 2pm to 7.30pm, will become an annual date.

There will be an avenue of speciality street food stalls, including pulled pork, Caribbean delicacies, Latin food, bbq shack, wood-fired pizza.

Sarah Nelson, from Mansfield BID (Business Improvement District), who is leading the organisation of the event on behalf of partners, including Mansfield District Council, said: “People have for years been talking about having a big party in the town centre that is family-oriented and this will be it.”

Jono Edwards, who co-owns a number of venues in the town centre, added: “Surely it’s time we finally let go of our past reputations, move forward and truly appreciate what we have on our doorstep.

“There has been lots of positive organisation with some creative and passionate people.”

Mike Robinson, director of economic growth at Mansfield District Council, said: “We are glad to support another big event for Mansfield as it is one that is sure to raise the profile of the town centre.”
