Christmas 2023


Best Dressed Window Competition!

We will be running our Best Dressed Window competition once again this year. Judging will take place on 30th November and the winner announced on 30th November during the Christmas light switch on. 

We have not chosen a theme, other than 'Christmas' as businesses have told us they prefer to use their creative skills freely. 

An independent judge will be scoring every window that has a Christmas display, starting at Buttercross Court and working their way down Market Place, Castle Gate and Sunderland Street. 

There is no need to register your interest, however if your business is outside of this area and you want to make sure we dont miss you, please email communications@tickhilltowncouncil.co.uk.  


Christmas Light Switch On!

Once again we are holding our annual Christmas light switch on in conjunction with the Tickhill Together Late Night Shopping event. We will be asking a group of local children to count us down to the big light switch on so we hope you will help us by counting with them. 

For the safety of the children, we would kindly ask members of the public not to step onto the Buttercross but remain on the pavements on Sunderland Street and Market Place.

We expect this to be a very busy night so please take care as the pavements will be very busy. 



 Carols Around the Buttercross!

We would like you all to join us and the Salvation Army Band on Christmas Eve for the traditional Carols Around the Buttercross. 

As always Market Place and Sunderland Street will be closed for public safety between 6:45pm and 7:45pm. 

Marshalls will be on hand, along with members of the council and volunteers who will be handing out carol sheets, but to help us save trees, if you already have one from previous years tucked at the back of a drawer please bring it along with you as we will be using the same sheets.
