Craft fair cancelled

I'm sorry to inform you, but this weekend's craft fair at the Caird Hall in Dundee has been cancelled. I received an email this morning saying due to a few cancellations there aren't enough exhibitors for this show. This is something that happens and I can totally understand the organizer in his decision.
What makes me VERY angry is, that they now have cancelled all planned shows in this venue, because Dundee City Council doesn't permit them anymore to put up their banners and promotional stands outside the hall on the day!! How are people supposed to know about events if no advertising is allowed??? This craft fair was always very well attended and even attracted people from outside Dundee. And it was a great opportunity for small, local businesses (like me) to display their work and sell their products. No wonder that the set-up of new businesses in this area is on the decline. Well done, Dundee City Council!

Sorry to hear that. I hope the council reconsider their ideas.
