TFS 2023

Sat 2 Sept 2023

Mansfield Town Centre

With things you’d never believe, and a little hint of retro,
soak up the festival vibes outside and in.

There’ll be awesome sights and sounds all around Mansfield Town Centre including outdoor performances, whacky walkabout shows, live music, hands-on activities, and other treats in store.

All in one day and all for FREE.

Everyone’s invited!
