Check before you try to visit a Christmas Market

Some local authorities are having to cancel their bonfire night and Christmas market events due to budget pressures, we are sad to report.

Among the cancellations so far announced are Leeds’ German Christmas Market and its six bonfire night events. Glasgow has also cancelled its Christmas Market.

Cambridge is reportedly “facing challenges” according to an article in the Guardian.

There are also doubts about Edinburgh’s Christmas festival and also runs London’s Hyde Park Christmas markets.

Glasgow, Cardiff and Hackney have all cancelled their Bonfire Night events.

With councils coming under severe financial pressure it would be worth checking before you decide to visit a Christmas market.
