Winchester Christmas market has been cancelled this year due to growing concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic.

The organisers have today confirmed that the Winchester Christmas market has been cancelled this year due to growing concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released by Winchester Cathedral the have said the following;
It is with great sadness we announce that the Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market will not be taking place this year.

We have carefully explored all possible options for the much-loved Christmas Market and are very grateful for the ongoing support and guidance of our partners at Winchester City Council, Winchester BID, the Safety Advisory Group and Public Health England.

However, as health and safety continues to be our highest priority, we have concluded it is no longer possible to proceed with the Christmas Market due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, growing uncertainty and the tightening of government restrictions.

We know this will be deeply disappointing for many, and not least, those who visit each year to enjoy the festivities as part of their Christmas tradition with friends and family.

This is going to be a significantly challenging time for the 30 charities, 120 small independent retailers, local businesses and suppliers across the region that the market supports, as well as for Winchester Cathedral. We will be working hard with our partners to find alternative ways to support the city, after what has been a difficult year for many, and to bring festive cheer to Winchester in both traditional and new creative ways.”

Winchester City Council have already started to put up the Christmas decorations around the town to ensure they are in place ready for the switch on to be announced.
