Edinburgh’s Christmas Covid-19 update

Hi All,

I hope this email find you all safe and well.

I want to make you aware of some changes to Edinburgh’s Christmas in reaction to the heightened ScotGov Covid measures.

From tomorrow on:

East Princes Street Gardens

At peak times the queue to Edinburgh’s Christmas will now be via the Market Street entrance to the park. All other gates will be EXIT only. Out with Peak times access to Edinburgh’s Christmas will remain the same as normal off peak days.

The capacity of East Princes Street Gardens is also being reduced to give more space on site at any given time and help our visitors feel more comfortable at this uncertain time.

All staff on site must wear face coverings except if exempt. Please note that you will have to provide proof for your exemption or you will be made to wear a mask. Supplying staff with fake exception lanyards in not acceptable and any traders or rides being found to do that will be fined.

All market traders

Food vendors MUST NOT have condiments for visitors to help themselves to – please remove all condiments or items in which visitors can collectively handle which could result in the virus being transferred.

I apologise if this email sounds at all heavy handed, but in order to remain open we really need to come together and make sure we are operating as safely as possible to protect our staff, visitors and ourselves.

Many thanks for your cooperation!

Your AEE market team
