TROWBRIDGE'S Weavers Market will go ahead tomorrow, with all the stalls moving into the Town Hall to escape the forecast high winds.

Organisers had hoped the weather would stay calm enough for the outside stalls in Market Street and Fore Street, and their new music stage, to go ahead. But high winds and driving rain overnight last night and a fresh forecast of strong winds to come, have sent them running for cover.

"We'd love to bring our planned market but we always had this in mind as a great Plan B," said Market Team member Giles Nicholson this morning. "It's for safety reasons, for visitors and our traders. Gazebos and high winds don't mix and the forecast is pretty conclusive, and highly unusual for the time of year.

"It's been a tough call. Although the forecast had been in place for a few days, Sunday's forecast was calm - meaning a slight change of timing would have allowed us to run as planned. This was still quite possible until today."

The change means there will be no stalls tomorrow (Saturday) in Fore Street, with traders setting up in the Town Hall instead, alongside the activities and stalls already due to be held there. There will also be no street food in the Market Place, which will stay open to traffic. "Although some of our food traders trade from vehicles which would be safe in high winds we decided it was not right to close the road just for this. On Saturday it will be open as normal with no diversions. We'll be back to our usual set-up in September," Giles said.

The high winds mean Active Trowbridge have also had to call off their plans to provide fun sessions on inflatables for youngsters in the Town Park.

The Market Team are working hard today setting up the Town Hall so as many of possible of the outdoor traders can be fitted in alongside the usual indoor stalls. "Many of our "outdoor" traders will be joining us inside along with our musicians. We are filling every available space in this great community building, and big thanks to Town Hall Arts for making that happen. We'd love to bring you our planned market but this is now a chance to explore our stalls and one of the Town's real treasures. We'll be back to our normal outdoor format in September."
