In 2014 Mansfield was awarded Purple Flag status by the Association of Town Centre Management (ATCM). This prestigious award demonstrates a huge commitment to provide a welcoming and safe environment for people visiting our town at night.

The Purple Flag award is given to towns that meet strict criteria and deliver action plans to make continuous improvements to their evening economy.
