Leadenham Christmas Market going ahead two weeks later than planned after national lockdown is lifted
A community Christmas market is going ahead two weeks later than planned, after the latest national lockdown is lifted.
Leadenham Christmas Market had been due to take place on Sunday, November 29, but will now be on Sunday, December 13.
Leadenham Teahouse will be teaming up with William Reeve, of Leadenham Estate, again for what will be their second market.
Set in the five-acre grounds of Leadenham House, the outdoor event is for small, local businesses to showcase their products.
Katie Mace, of Leadenham Teahouse, said it would be disappointing if visitors and stall holders could not make the new date, but they were excited to be able to hold it.
“As a business we have to be able to be resilient and adaptable and we appreciate everyone’s continued support,” she said.
“If lockdown 2 is extended then we may have to cancel the event, but we are currently working hard to make sure everyone at the Leadenham Christmas Market will be safe."
William Reeve said: “We wholeheartedly embrace this lockdown and look forward to being able to provide local artisan businesses and their customers with an opportunity to trade and shop when it has served its purpose by protecting the NHS and enabling people to celebrate Christmas.”
The Christmas market will adhere to social distancing rules, and anyone with booked tickets for the original date must re-register at www.leadenhamestate.com/tickets
