The event is being funded jointly by Mansfield BID and Mansfield District Council, as part of Destination Mansfield. The aim of the project is to develop the visitor economy in the district as well culturally enriching local people, strengthening a sense of community spirit, and creating opportunities for people to gain new skills.

Mayor Andy Abrahams said: “Last year’s Party on the Market was so fabulous we had to bring it back and this year’s event promises to be amazing.

“It will take place rain or shine, so mark the date in your calendar and come along for a day of fun, laughter and singing your heart out.

“I would like to thank the backing we have had from Mansfield BID and local businesses. We could not stage brilliant, free, events of this kind in Mansfield without the support of partners working together for the good of the whole district.”

Jay Rowlinson, chief executive of Mansfield BID, added: “This is one event you won’t want to miss. Who doesn’t love a good singalong to their favourite tunes?

“There’s not just live music. There’ll be entertainment for all the family. It will be the perfect start to the summer season.”
