AN annual winter market spectacular has been cancelled due to the impending changes to Coronavirus guidelines.

Holker Hall's Winter Markets event was set to take place this weekend but with the recent announcement of a new lockdown event organisers have been forced to cancel.

In a communication to event-goers, a Holker Hall spokesperson said: "It is with a heavy heart we have to inform you that due to the incoming lockdown, we are unable to hold our Winter Markets this coming weekend.

"We are all hugely disappointed as we know everyone was looking forward to our annual start to the festive season.

"Every member of our team has worked so hard to ensure we can run the event as safely as possible and after the success of our Chilli Fest in September, we are all devastated we are unable to bring you the Winter Markets."
