Christmas Markets in Glasgow Cancelled Due to Covid Fears and Lockdown Restrictions.

The Glasgow Christmas markets have been cancelled for 2020 due to coronavirus fears and lockdown restrictions in the city. Organisers of the popular events, usually held in George Square and St Enoch’s Square, revealed the news this morning in a post on social media.

Organisers say they have taken the decision together with Glasgow City Council and say public safety has to come first. A statement from organisers reads: “It is with much sadness that we confirm that together with Glasgow City Council, we have mutually agreed that in light of the current lockdown restrictions and continuing covid19 restrictions the Glasgow Christmas Markets 2020 will not take place.

Businesses who have not been told to close in the latest round of COVID restrictions are asking country leaders for more adequate financial support.
