Due to extremely high gusts of wind leading to a “marquee mishap” Kirkstall Valley Development Trust have had to cancel this year’s Kirkstall Christmas Market, writes Ramona Green.
There will now be a market with an art and craft style theme being held at Unit 11, Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park (next to Pure Gym).
This will now be held on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th December, 10am until 4pm.
Due to these strong winds, one of the main marquees blew away and fell onto yet another marquee last Saturday, (December 7). This not only made them unusable, but organisers were worried there are strong winds and gusts predicted for this coming weekend.
KVDT did not want to put the public at risk and so decided to cancel and hold a craft market at Unit 11 instead.
They still promise a “fun time to be had by all.” A
dele Rae, Community Director for KVDT, has been busy with the help of several volunteers, turning Unit 11 into a “Winter Wonderland” fit for any Christmas Market.
The entrance fee is on a pay-as-you-feel basis.
If anyone has any questions regarding this decision to cancel, or anything else to do with KVDT and the Kirkstall Christmas Market, please contact Adele Rae on 07900 986570.
