Boston’s Christmas Market cancelled due to further lockdown

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the further lockdown, Boston Borough Council and Boston Town Area Committee have decided to cancel the Boston Christmas Market (Thursday 26th November), Boston Christmas Hamlet (Thursday 26th November – Sunday 29 November), and Boston Craft Markets which were due to take place on Thursday 5th, 12th and 19th November and Thursday 3th December.

At this stage the Craft Markets are still intended to run on Thursday 10th and 17th December, but these will be reviewed closer to the time.

Meanwhile the Blossoms Fire Garden, organised by Transported and Boston Borough Council with funding from ACE and Boston Town Area Committee, will be postponed until February 2021.

The Illuminate celebration for #onesmallcandle will proceed, where all residents, shops, businesses are invited to illuminate the town by placing a candle or lantern in their windows on the 26th November, giving thanks and expressing positive hope for the future.
