A Doncaster Council spokesman said: “Bring the whole family along and enjoy a traditional Christmas outing.

“Take the children to see Santa in his grotto inside the Wool Market, jump on a few rides in Market Square, warm up with some alcohol free mulled wine and hot chestnuts and witness the streets of Doncaster come alive as the Christmas lights are turned on.

“Most importantly, soak in the festive atmosphere with a range of Christmas themed entertainment that will be popping up in various parts of the town centre for you to enjoy.

“We also have a few surprises up our sleeves, but you will have to wait until the day to see it. There will be a big bang-less bang to end the night as we conclude with a beautiful firework display.”

Full details and timings of events will be released by the council in the coming weeks.
