I am worried about overcrowding and crowd control. What are you intending doing to ensure that this is mitigated?

Yes, we understand the concern. However, the event capacity numbers will be strictly controlled through mandatory registration, scanning in and out of the event, providing us with accurate data on how many people are on at any one time. Our marshalls will also be ensuring that all stall holders and visitors to the event are adhering to all current social distancing guidelines. In addition, our guidance is as follows:-


  • Members of public to be advised that 2 people from the same household should visit any single stall at a time;
  • ALL to be advised not to attend the market if they or any of their household are symptomatic or self-isolation;
  • Members of public will be required to adhere to the one-way system around the event, ensuring social distancing at all time;
  • Volunteer stewards to be stationed at main access points to alert people to COVID procedures, and to enforce where necessary;
  • Access to the Event to be marshalled through main Entrance;
  • Members of public will be reminded of the social distancing measures and asked for compliance. Members of public will also be asked to move on from stalls once they have made their purchases;
  • Stalls will be widely spaced i.e. there will be minimum 2m (typically 3m) between every space – this guarantees space for 2 or 3 customers to queue safely and ample space for stallholders. Between any two facing stands or pitches, there will be minimum 6 metres distance.
