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...
Following the recent UK Government announcement, we are pleased to confirm that we will be safely easing some restrictions across our markets and events from Monday 19th July.
Since the start of the pandemic, the safety of our traders, visitors, colleagues and the wider community has been at the forefront of our operations. Whilst restrictions are easing, we want to ensure we continue to provide a safe environment for everyone over the coming months.
Our traders and colleagues will continue to follow good hygiene and safety processes. We will continue to place hand sanitiser stations around the markets, and we will still implement queueing systems at the busiest stalls, in addition to a number of other measures which traders will be expected to follow, but the majority of the stringent rules will be eased.
Whilst face-coverings and two-metre social distancing will no longer be mandatory, we know that many customers will still follow the guidance. We, therefore, ask for your continued support for those who choose to wear a face-covering at our markets or who would like some additional space.
We want to say a huge thank you for everyone's ongoing support since May 2020. A special thank you to Warwick District Council, who have guided and supported us to ensure our markets can remain open throughout the lockdowns.
Coronavirus is still in circulation, and rates continue to rise, so stay safe and be kind to others.
Our safety measures are reviewed regularly, and we will alter our safety measures if needed.
