It's been confirmed that Exeter's traditional Christmas market will take place around Cathedral Green following the fire that destroyed the Royal Clarence Hotel.
Included in this year’s event will be a special chalet for the use of independent traders in the cathedral area who have been closed since the fire took place.
Given the extent of the damage caused by the fire, which started in the Cathedral Yard area of the city, the layout of the market has had to be reconsidered.
We are keen to offer a Market that will lift the spirits of city residents who have been saddened and affected by the dreadful fire.
It is our ambition to deliver a market that supports the city this Christmas and we are currently considering how we can play our part in the recovery of independent businesses in the Cathedral area.
