Alnwick Market operator reveals plans for return after latest lockdown is eased next month
Alnwick Market has been pencilled in for a return next month if lockdown restrictions are eased as planned.
Operator Geraud (UK) is planning its first market on Thursday, April 15, which is scheduled to be the first opportunity after the reopening of non-essential shops.
James Ormsby, who runs Alnwick Market, said: “We’re really excited to confirm, that in line with the lifting of lockdown restrictions we will be reopening on Thursday, April 15.
“We’ll be welcoming back all your favourite traders and we’ve had lots of enquiries from new traders looking to trade at Alnwick for the first time.”
He added: “We will be operating in a Covid secure way, providing additional hand sanitiser for both customers and traders.”
It is a year since Geraud (UK) was appointed to take over the running of the markets by Northumberland Estates.
It finally held its first market last June after the first lockdown and enjoyed a good summer season with up to 35 stallholders.
