Knaresborough Lions are part of the organising group for the Town's annual Christmas Market, held over the first weekend in December each year. This event has become a highlight of a series of similar highly popular markets held in towns throughout Yorkshire in the Yuletide run up.
Apart from our role in helping to put the event on, Lions man a chalet selling our unique mulled wine and hot fruit punch during the event. All proceeds go to charity. And on the Friday, the eve of the Christmas Market, at the ceremony in the Market Square to turn on the Christmas Tree Lights, we play host to a very special visitor from the North Pole - always a hit with the hundreds of youngsters who attend. On the Sunday, we provide marshals for the spectacular fireworks display at the Castle.
