Cancellation of Sleaford Christmas Market 2020

Cancellation of Sleaford Christmas Market

Following discussions by the Sleaford Christmas Market Group, supported by Sleaford Town Council, the difficult decision has been made to cancel this year's Market.

The event was due to be held on Sunday 29th November, but due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the safety of visitors and traders must come first.

The popular Christmas Market has been going from strength to strength over the past few years, with many visitors and traders even coming from outside the area. Several thousand people attend the event and it would be impossible to adhere to the social distancing rules in the current climate.

The event takes 11 months to organise and prepare for and we are very disappointed and saddened to have to make this decision.

However, we are pleased to announce that Christmas will still be celebrated in the town, just in a different way. Opportunities being explored are a published newsletter advertising trader's wares, together with delivery options. For those who prefer a virtual shopping experience, we intend to hold a virtual event using social media and the Town Council's website.

Hope you will be able to join us in some way to celebrate Christmas in the town. Further information will be released soon.
