Richmond Christmas market cancelled due to pandemic

Stalls at a previous Christmas Market.

This year’s Christmas market in Richmond has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event is usually held in early December and features festive market stalls, music and performers.

It is organised by the Christmas Market Committee.

Chairman Dennis Graves said they had taken the decision because the “unpredictable and ever changing environment we live in” has made it difficult to commit to running the community event safely.

He added: “Unfortunately, after looking at all the options open to us, the Christmas Market Committee have decided not to host the Richmond Christmas Market this year.

“We shall concentrate on making next year’s market a great success and help to celebrate Richmond’s 950

“We may look into organising an event earlier next year, but this this will also depend on government restrictions

“Thank you for your continued support and we hope you understand the decision we have had to make.”
