FARMERS’ MARKET 17th JANUARY 2021 – CANCELLED
Due to the current Lockdown in England, we have taken the decision not to operate the Farmers’ Market at Hoghton Tower on the 17th January 2021.
This decision has not been taken lightly and our team has given much consideration to the current guidelines and advice from authorities. The Government guidance does allow outdoor markets to remain open, but for essentials only and not recreation. The guidance also instructs that people stay local, in their own village, town or area of their city. As Hoghton Tower is in a rural area, most visitors to our market need to travel to reach the site, therefore making it hard to abide by the current travel restrictions. It therefore feels against the spirit of this lockdown for us to operate the market.
Our lovely traders are informed and we are setting up a ‘virtual market’ page on our event listing for the 17th January where you will be able to find their website pages for online ordering. Click here for more information.
Please take care and stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back (hopefully) in February!!
