Winner of many Britain in Bloom awards and well known for its characterful Market Place, interesting shops and popular eateries, Market Bosworth is a small market town that can trace its history back to a settlement in the Bronze Age. The Battle of Bosworth took place to the south of the town in the village of Upton in 1485. If you take a walk around the town you will find shields and Tudor roses as well as street nameplates decorated with Henry VII's dragon and Richard III's boar in recognition of the Battle. There are also three schools and three churches and with the Country Park, Water Park and Battlefield Line Railway within walking distance there is plenty to do for all ages.

The Christmas lights have been fixed around the Market Place and along Main Street in preparation for our Christmas Lights Switch On which is to take place on Thursday 1 December 2016.
Next up will be the Christmas Tree which is scheduled for delivery and installation in the Market Place at 6.30 am on Friday 25th November.
This will mean an early start for some and the Parish Council and Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council gratefully acknowledge the assistance and patience of adjacent residents and traders who have permitted the lights to be hung on their properties and who may be affected by the early noise of the tree being installed.

There will be a slight reduction in the number of available car parking spaces in the Market Place while the tree is in situ. » Less
