Fundraiser to let there be lights

A RACE night and evening of live music are being held to boost Market Rasen’s Christmas lights fund.

Live music from three bands will be at Festival Hall on October 28 from 7pm. Lincoln-based band The Gypsies will be covering rock classics, More Tanks Than you will be performing original rock music and Random Solution will do an eclectic mix of traditional and modern material.

Tickets cost £5 and can be bought on the night.

A race night will be held at The Chase tonight, Wednesday October 26, from 6.30pm, tickets are £5 and include a pie and pea supper.

All money raised will go towards new lights for the town’s Market Place – Market Rasen did not have lights last year after the council could not afford to replace its existing lights which were no longer suitable.

Chase pub landlord Brian Sankey said: “Christmas lights have been a traditional part of Market Rasen life for many years now and like mince pies, carols and snow, Christmas just doesn’t seem the same without them.”
