It is with great regret that the Le Marché committee have decided to postpone the event for 2020.
The next Le Marché will take place on August 30th 2021.
The main reason for this postponement is the current uncertainty in regard to the length of time Covid-19 will take to allow life to return to normal.
In addition the successful running of Le Marché depends on early commitments from stall holders, advertisers and publicity. We feel those commitments are unlikely to come at this time.
With the lockdown in France and the UK ramping up restrictions daily, it is also likely that French traders will be in short supply, which would dilute the French part of the event considerably.
We have not given up hope completely. Should things go better for this country than the experts predict, we would organise a smaller event to bring a bit of joy into these worrying times but we cannot say at this stage how likely this is to happen and most certainly cannot expect our booked entertainers to turn down any engagement from elsewhere should one be offered.
Our best wishes to you all. Stay safe and we look forward to some more positive news soon.
From Le Marché Committee
