Crowd in Canute Place at Christmas Light Switch On

Due to the yellow weather warning, and gusts of up to 50mph being forecast on Saturday (27th) we have had to cancel the Saturday of Knutsford Christmas Market along with the entertainment in Canute Place and the Santa Parade.

The Sunday of the Christmas Market is unaffected and will take place as planned where we will have over 100 fantastic local traders as the perfect place to start your Christmas shopping.

Town Mayor, Cllr Stewart Gardiner, will now switch on the Christmas Lights at 4pm on Sunday by Crib outside Lost and Found.

Cancelling any event is always hugely disappointing for us, our traders and all those who were planning to attend. Unfortunately the forecast winds make it impossible to safely hold the market and other parts of the event as planned. Fortunately the winds are expected to ease by midnight on Saturday allowing the Sunday market to go ahead on what is forecast to be a cold but dry and sunny day.
