What’s in a name? – Windermere Christmas Celebration

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick note to let you know why we’ve changed the name to Windermere Christmas Celebration.

There are some fun and exciting laws and rules about Markets in the UK. These include things like the Market Charter given to Ambleside in 1650 by James II and the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 Section 16A. Basically all this leads to a no go for having a “market” and the need to have a celebration or festival. We cant even have a “fair”…

Last year we got away with it by classing it as a celebration but because we advertised it as a market the powers that be have told us we can’t do that again.

BUT… this gives us a great opportunity to focus on the other aspect of our Celebration: our entertainment! We’ve secured a fantastic programme of singers and performers for the whole weekend. Again we have focused on local talent where we can.

So, Ladies, Gentlemen, Children, Elves and Reindeer, we look forward to welcoming you to our Windermere Christmas Celebration, with all the food, craft and entertainment you could ever want on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December 2017.

Signed – All the Team at Windermere Christmas Celebration (formerly known as Windermere Christmas Market)
