Markets postponed to this weekend
THE Markets on Rokeby October 31 launch date has been postponed to this weekend.
The November 7 and 8 event will close Rokeby Road between Bagot Road and Hay Street to traffic every weekend to make way for 200 tented market stalls.
In June this year, Mayor Heather Henderson said the markets could be the key to bringing a Christmastime festival back to Rokeby Road after the 16th annual Subi Street Festival was cancelled in 2014.
Event organisers Venn Property Group did not respond to questions regarding the extended launch weekend before deadline.
