Each year, MWCDG plan and organise four social events for the Mansfield Woodhouse community. Here is just a brief description of each event.

Party In The Park

June’s Party in the Park attracts thousands of residents to a whole host of open air entertainment including live music, fairground, activities, stalls, and a variety of refreshments in the beautiful surroundings of Yeoman Hill Park.

Remembrance Event
Christmas Lights

Each November MWCDG encourages the community to come together on the Market Place to celebrate the start of the Christmas season.

Carols, live entertainment, seasonal refreshments, festive music and a special visit by Santa Claus all help to create an enjoyable ambience before the big count down commences to welcome Christmas to Mansfield Woodhouse.

Christmas Event

The conclusion of our social interactions, MWCDG’s Christmas Event in December takes place in Turner Hall and consists of a range of charity fundraising stalls, live music, entertainment and seasonal refreshments.

Each year the lounge area is transformed into a magical winter wonderland, complete with Father Christmas in his Grotto to meet youngsters and receive wish lists personally.

MWCDG closely engage with partner organisations including
St. Edmund’s Parish Church, Mansfield District Corps of Drums,
The 4th Mansfield Woodhouse Scouts, The W.I. and The Old Mansfield Woodhouse Society to plan and organise the Remembrance Day Service and Parade each November.

Starting with a parade through the village, attendees make their way to the cenotaph on Yeoman Hill Park to pay tribute to those who fought and fell in conflict.  Afterwards a full service is held in St. Edmund’s Church before relocating to the Pleasley Vale cenotaph and St. Chad’s Church for a mirrored event.

Halloween Spooktacular

October 2023 saw the first Halloween event run by MWCDG, in conjunction with our partners at Gingersnaps Parties .

Originally intended to be held in Yeoman Hill Park, inclement weather meant the event was switched to Park Road Resource Centre, a former Adult Education facility dating back over 100 years.

Scares-a-plenty ensured everyone had a memorable afternoon with refreshments, stalls, a scare maze and spooky halloween parade to boost the entertainment on offer.

All of MWCDG’s events are intended to stimulate social interaction, tackle loneliness and isolation as well as help local charities and community groups to engage with residents and raise vital funds for their cause.  All events are free at the point of entry and risk assessed to ensure public safety at all times.
