Another year where the rain lashed down on the annual Warrington Viking Medieval Market! After a long day of the rain soaking us from above and then slowly soaking up our dresses and tabbards through the day, Legends in Warrington town centre was probably best summed up by the look on the face of our huge animatronic troll which trudged through the rain from opening to close.
Despite the multitude of things against us this year – town traffic management problems, the demolition of the multi-story car park to name a few – around 3,500 attended and trade was good. It was clear that folks that made it out were clearly there to shop and enjoy.
This event was also temporarily the last event for the Knights of the Damned, as they are now taking a well-deserved year off after 12 years of jousting. We also lose our biggest supporter when the market manager Steve will retire after 17 long years in December.
Fortunately, the market’s assistant manager, Paul, will still be a familiar face at future Warrington events and even intends to extend to scope of the Warrington Market events in the future.
As always, watch this space.
