The fifth Late Night Christmas Shopping Evening in Southwell seemed busier than ever this year. Despite the cold and occasional snow flurry the streets were filled with people enjoying the mixture of the town's wonderful independent shops and festive music and entertainment.

The BBC Good Food Show Birmingham returns to the NEC this winter from Thursday 30th November to Sunday 3rd December.

This December, local charity Reach is tackling the issue of loneliness facing people with learning disabilities through its Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign, 'Not Lonely this Christmas'.

Christmas will soon be upon us and Beaumond House Community Hospice is excited about its upcoming festive fundraising events.

Santa will be busy again this year with his many helpers! We have made some minor changes this year to take into account the new housing developments in Southwell and the villages. We aim to start at around 6.00 pm and finish at 9.00 pm, but due to the many children we see, all timings are approximate. Please bear with us if we are not quite on schedule.
