11 December 2023

Disney fans are in for a real treat this weekend as Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be in Gainsborough to meet fans at Marshall’s Yard. 

Families will be able to meet the two cartoon characters and have their picture taken with them around the fountain area at the shopping centre on Saturday, December 16, from 11am to 1pm.

Alex Matthews, senior marketing manager of event sponsor Mercedes Benz of Lincoln, said: “This is a very unique opportunity to come and meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse and promises to be a must-see event for all Disney fans.

“As proud event sponsors we will be bringing two of our cars along to display throughout the weekend. One of which is the EQA from Mercedes-EQ, a compact SUV that boasts an all-electric range of up to 345 miles."

The vehicles will be displayed near Costa. 

In addition to the visit by the famous Disney characters, a Santa’s Grotto will be available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 3pm.

The festive sounds of Christmas will continue on Sunday with the 119 Squadron Cadet Brass Band performing on Sunday from 1pm.  

Melissa Cutforth, assistant centre manager at Marshall’s Yard, said: “This is a chance for everyone in the community to come along and really get into the festive spirit.

“If you’ve never met Mickey and Minnie before, then this is your chance to come along and grab a photo with them.  

“This is the latest in our ’12 Days of Christmas’ programme of events leading up to Christmas, bringing the whole community together."

There will also be free face painting on Saturday [16 December] from 11am to 1pm, sponsored by the main ’12 Days of Christmas’ programme sponsor McDonald’s franchisee, Bomead Ltd.
