Gloucester Quays Victorian Market cancelled

The annual Victorian Market at Gloucester Quays has been cancelled in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Organisers have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's event, which normally marks the start of the festive season in Gloucester.

Although the Victorian market won't be there this year, festivities are still being planned. These are hoped to include an outdoor ice rink, whose plans are still being finalised and will be confirmed soon.

The successful Orchard Street Markets taking place in Mariners Square will continue each month.

Jason Pullen, Lifestyle Outlets managing director, said: "We understand this decision is likely to be disappointing for the many people who look forward to our Victorian Market, both locally and those who travel from afar. However, at this time we have to consider the wider implications of hosting a large-scale event of this nature.

"The safety of our customers remains our number one priority. We are grateful for everyone's continued support with Gloucester Quays now fully reopened.

"The restaurants in the Quays have dining in and now are servicing for Click and Collect and delivery with extended outside seating in the historic docks and Cineworld is now also open again.

"The festive season looks set to be better than ever. I'm sure the Quays will be as magical as ever whilst allowing us to keep everybody safe."
