With Mansfield set to see some festive sparkle this weekend, Dalmatian’s MD’s next guest on her “Day in the Life of” show on Mansfield 103.2 is businessman Bill Taylor.

Bill …. Or Santa Bill as he’s more commonly known was instrumental in ensuring that Mansfield’s Christmas lights became something worth visiting when funding for the event was pulled. Bill bought together many different business and community groups to ensure the lights continued and most importantly continued to bring visitors and shoppers into the town centre.

Bill will also talk about his childhood, setting up his own business and his work with the business community.

Bill also shares his choice in music.

The Big Switch on takes place this Sunday (18th November) in Mansfield town centre, there’ll be entertainment for the whole family throughout the day and the live stage show starts at 3.25pm.

The cast of the Mansfield Palace Theatre panto, Snow White, will be on stage, alongside children’s favourite Peter Rabbit, Mansfield Opera singer Alexandra Stenson and, of course, Santa himself!

They’ll also be music from a Gary Barlow tribute and Nottingham duo Brotherhood , plus they’ll also be a laser show!

The lights will be switched on just before 5 followed by a fireworks spectacular.


“A Day in the Life of” with the Hardwick Motor Company Limited goes out every Wednesday from 6pm on Mansfield 103.2, and you can also listen online and if you’ve missed any of the previous ones, you can download the podcast.
