Bishop's Stortford Town Council confirms Christmas fayre to go ahead
Festive preparations are in full swing as Bishop's Stortford Town Council has confirmed that its Christmas fayre is going ahead this year.
The event will take place on Saturday December 4, from 9.30am until 4.30pm, in North Street, Market Square, Potter Street and South Street, all of which will be pedestrianised.
Because of Covid-19 precautions, the fayre has been scaled down, but there will still be over 100 stalls including regular traders from the town's Thursday and Saturday markets as well as the monthly farmers and craft market.
A spokeswoman said: "You will be able to explore an exciting array of unique handmade gift stalls selling jewellery, candles, health and beauty products and much more. You will be tempted by delicious, locally-made jams, chutney, cakes and fudges.
"Make sure you visit our speciality Christmas stalls offering festive items and gifts, food and drinks. Hungry shoppers can keep the cold at bay with many warming delights from our hot food stalls whilst also enjoying a festive beverage between stall shopping.
"Throughout the town centre, there will be a variety of entertainment for the whole family. Enjoy live music at three different stages featuring over twenty music acts and plenty of entertainment for children. We will have a community stage and a busking stage so please do get in touch if you would like to perform.
"Santa will also be popping by to say happy Christmas."
