Organisers of Stansted Christmas Fayre announced the news that this year’s event would not be going ahead due to concerns over the weather forecast and parking.
A post from the event’s Facebook page read: ‘It is with a heavy heart that we have to share the news that, due to safety and logistics concerns caused by the ongoing rain, this year's Christmas Fayre will no longer be going ahead.
The event was due to run from Thursday until Sunday at Stansted Park in Rowlands Castle and feature a number of food and craft stalls.
The post continued: ‘This decision has been beyond difficult for all of us at Stansted. We know that you will be as disappointed as we are; the Christmas Fayre has become a firm favourite with one and all and the highlight of our year.
Organisers said tickets bought in advance will be refunded automatically.
