If you do not fall into one of these categories, we respectfully ask that you do not attend the Market as you will not be permitted entry.

Contractors or third party service company’s are asked to attend site only where a prior appointment has been made and to sign in at the reception in the first instance.

These measures are intended to protect our customers as well as our staff.
