Warwick’s Victorian Evening celebrates 40th anniversary
Warwick's much loved Victorian Evening returns to the town on Thursday 23 November 2023 and this year celebrates its 40th anniversary.
Jamie Walker from CJ's Events Warwickshire said: "This is becoming increasingly frustrating and in 5 years of running markets, we've never had to cancel so many markets in such a short period.
"Gusts are reaching 43mph throughout Saturday, as forecasted by the Met Office. Stalls can become very dangerous in strong winds or gusts, it's just not worth the risk. Safety is our main concern.
"This is having a financial impact on all involved. We've been looking at moving traders to an indoor venue, so at least some form of market can take place, however we've been unable to agree appropriate access times.
"We know many traders and visitors will be upset by this decision, but hope they understand our reasons why. Our whole team hope the weather improves in the coming week, so we can get back into a routine and see our traders & visitors again."
