What is Warwick Mop Fair?
We get asked every year by lots of people why Warwick Market closes for two weeks during October. This closure is because Waewick Mop Fair comes into town. So here's some history about Warwick Mop...
This time last year the world watched on as a new virus called Coronavirus or COVID-19 was spreading across China and working its way around the world. We think it's safe to say none of us will forget 2020.
From closing our markets down for a short period back in March, we returned providing a safe COVID Secure Environment, we've been used as a case study by Central Government and more recently won a Resilience Award for our work throughout the pandemic. We've supported a massive range of traders across our weekly & monthly markets, in addition to providing a lifeline to many members of the community who rely these.
Our whole team have worked tirelessly to ensure we can remain open for business for our traders and visitors and done so in a COVID Secure Environment. Our team haven't and won't stop, we will continue to work hard to ensure our markets remain safe & can grow even more over the coming months.
We've worked very closely with Warwick District Council's Senior Management, Environmental Health, Licencing, Car Parks, Media & CCTV teams throughout, along with other organisations such as BID Leamington, and we can't thank them enough.
We are so proud of the achievements our business has made, despite what a difficult and challenging year it's been. Like many other businesses right across the UK, it's been a very stressful and financially difficult year, but we've managed to get through 2020, and we look forward to 2021, where we hope we can deliver our amazing food festivals & special events in addition to our successful weekly & monthly markets.
We've only been able to get through the difficult months with the incredible support from our team, local community & our traders. So much work goes in behind the scenes to ensure our markets can remain open and to see a thriving market open in our towns is just fantastic, so THANK YOU, it truly means the world to our whole team.
We hope you have a safe Merry Christmas & an enjoyable Happy New Year.
Stay safe & be kind to others! Here's to 2021!
