Bishop’s Stortford Christmas Fayre is taking place on Saturday 4 December 2021 from 09.30 – 16.30 on North Street, Potter Street, Market Square and South Street. This free event will include activities for all the family such as live music and performances, a fun fair, and much more. The Fayre incorporates the regular weekly Saturday Market and the Farmers and Craft Market, as well as specialised festive stalls.

The Fayre is a major event throughout the Town Centre which many people are expected to attend and it would not be possible without road closures. Road closures will be in force on 4 December from 06.00 to 19.00 on North Street, Potter Street, South Street up to the junction with Station Road, High Street up to Basbow Lane and Market Square with access only available to pedestrians. Ingress and egress will therefore be limited to pedestrians and emergency vehicles only. Apton Road will be available to vehicles for access only.

During the same period the ‘One Way’ system will be suspended on certain roads, allowing for vehicles to drive in both directions. This will apply to Church Street, Water Lane and Barrett Lane.
Also during the same period Church Street, Apton Road, Newtown Road, Water Lane and Barrett Lane will have a weight restriction of 7.5 tons.

Diversions will be in effect to divert traffic around the closed area.

The traffic restrictions at Northgate End are scheduled to be completed by 4 December.

Unfortunately any road closure almost inevitably causes some inconvenience to a minority of people. We do, of course, endeavour to minimise both the level of inconvenience and the number of people affected, but it is not always possible to eliminate it completely.

Timings for the event are as follows:

  • Road closures, restrictions and diversions: 06.00 – 19.00
  • Christmas Fayre Event: 09.30 – 16.30
