Amulet Antique Fair

Posted Tuesday August 4th, 2015, 11:24 am

It is with regret that we are informing you that the Amulet Antique Market scheduled for next Wednesday 12th August has been cancelled. Following the Events Committee meeting where it was agreed that the High Street would not be shut for any future markets, (except Sundays and Bank Holidays), after representations from some businesses in the town, the market has decided it is not viable for them to come to Bridgnorth and be placed under the Town Hall and in some of the parking bays next week. Other opportunities will be considered for 2016 following the success of their market in May this year.
