Some Bad News...

It is with great regret that Icthus Event Solutions Ltd have to announce the cancellation of the 2016 Newbury Christmas Market. Due to increased costs and limited uptake from traders the event is no longer financially viable to Icthus as an organisation and are not able to meet the costs of overheads for the event and hire of Victoria Park. We would like to offer our sincere apologies to Newbury BID and Newbury Town Council who have supported us in this venture to date. We would also like to extend this apology to the Newbury community.

Managing Director of Newbury BID, Russell Downing said “ Newbury Bid are hugely disappointed following the announcement from Icthus at this late stage. A great deal of time from the BID Christmas & events group and management had been invested supporting this event along with Newbury Town Council as well as the management at Icthus Event Solutions Ltd” Mr Downing continued “ Newbury has a number of great Christmas events scheduled and we will be adding to these to ensure that Newbury is vibrant and full of festive cheer over this period. The Christmas events kick-off with the Light switch-on and Santa Parade on Sunday 27th November, this is also your first opportunity to visit Santa in his Grotto, he will remain in Newbury during the run-up to Christmas. And don’t forget the late night shopping and Choir of 1,000 voices extravaganza on 15th December starting at 17:00. With Children’s rides and entertainers and of course the mass choir around the Christmas tree it promises once again to be a magical evening. FREE Car Parking at Parkway and Kennett & Northbrook Multi- Story car parks (17:00 – 20:00).
