A fantastic 90 traders booked onto the event which was organised by Sleaford Town Council and was held in the Market Place, Sleaford Town Hall, Navigation Yard, Eastgate Car Park and Eastgate Green.

Live music and entertainment took place throughout the day on the stage in the Market Place and in Eastgate Car Park which included Angels Dance Squad, the Sleaford Ukulele Orchestra, Beyond a Princess, Miss Sarah-Jane, Kesteven Morris Dancers and the Lincolnshire Vocal Academy. The PA was provided by Express Entertainments.

There was also Father Christmas and his sleigh in the Market Place brought to the event by the Sleaford Kesteven Rotary Club and the Boston Showman who was in Eastgate Car Park with his vintage fairground organ and dog.

Fair rides and family game stalls were in Eastgate Car Park and on Eastgate Green, bringing lots of fun for all! Face painting was provided in the Town Hall.
