Please wear wellies. Expect the ground to be muddy, take it easy and walk slowly around the areas. Some places may be slippy. Due to the soft ground you may find it hard with a pram.

Dogs are welcome.

Ensure you maintain 2m social distance from others at all times. We will have covid marshalls wearing high vis.

When queuing at a stall, maintain 2m in the queue.

Masks are not compulsory as we are outside but it is your discretion if you prefer to wear one.

On arrival please make your way to the entrance and have your tickets ready to scan, either on your phone or in paper form. We need to scan the QR code on your tickets.

We will be running a bar/mulled wine takeaway service, this has to be purchased from the Cafe veranda and can be then consumed whilst browsing the market. In order for us to stay within current guidelines, you must NOT be seated in any area when drinking alcohol. You are only allowed to use the seats on the market for eating food and drinking non alcoholic drinks.

The rule of 6 applies outside. Please ensure you check your current tier guidelines before arrival to familiarise yourself with the rules.

There is plenty of parking for all but can we please ask for you to park sensibly and allow for soft ground. If you do find yourself in trouble and you are unable to get your car out, please make a member of the team aware. We do have tractors on standby.

Remember this event is completely outdoors, wrap up warm, wear sensible footwear and stay safe.

We have put everything in place to make sure this event can go ahead in a covid safe way, what we need now more than anything is for you to adhere to this guidance and support us by following our processes in place. This will allow a fantastic, safe time for all.

In the event of the markets not being able to go ahead due to restrictions, we will issue a refund.
