Leicester's Christmas Market

J. Heinz made this Freedom of Information request to Leicester City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Leicester City Council,

Leicester City Council/Markets charges casual traders inside the “Christmas Month of December” a £5 surcharge to the usual (high) rent. For what for this surcharge is used, since it is definitely not used for festive decoration or other usual Christmas habits. Instead the Market is dirty, loud and run down and uncared – due to this, more traders and customers stay away as usually and the trade is far below that of previous years.

Yours faithfully,

J. H.
