Leeds Steampunk Market - notification of cancelled event
« on: June 04, 2020, 11:44:28 am »
We are sorry to announce we have taken the decision to cancel this event this year.
Whilst the Government’s aspiration is for elements of the Leisure and Retail Industries to be able to function from the beginning of July, the simple fact is that we have no idea what restrictions will be enforced, whether or not these will apply to Museums or Markets, or indeed whether the aspiration will actually be realised.

Arranging a market or social event in any enclosed space (not just museums or galleries but larger spaces such as leisure centres) would be logistically impossible.
We are also very mindful that even were the event to be legally able to proceed while the Covid-19 virus will still be very much “at large”, it would be irresponsible to do so.
Please be assured we have taken this decision in the interests of the wellbeing of all our customers and traders, along with those staffing the museum.
We WILL see you all soon and will continue to make LSM’s plans known as early as possible.
