Hucknall Launch Day

Wednesday 9 August


A great day was had by all in Hucknall on Saturday 5 August, celebrating the launch of the Tour of Britain and the first Saturday Market.

Visitors had the chance to meet and have photos with British Olympic Gymnasts Ellie and Becky Downie. The girls kindly visited their home town centre to launch the town's first Saturday Market since the pedestrianisation of the High Street as well as launch the town's involvement in the Tour of Britain, which passes through Hucknall on Wednesday 6 September.

Lots of family fun made an enjoyable day for all ages with free activities including dance classes, face painting, juggling and the chance to meet the Tour of Britain mascot. 

First Art were also in town throughout the day with the world's first mobile poetry emporium.
