The Christmas-themed shopping and entertainment event was scheduled to return to the Open Air Theater this weekend after last year’s event was canceled due to a coronavirus pandemic.
Storm Irwen will blow up to 75mph of wind on the Yorkshire coast on Friday and Saturday through the open-air theater. The Japan Meteorological Agency has issued an amber weather warning.
The event’s organizer, the Scaborow Council, said the decision was made after authorities and stall owners expressed concern about high safety risks to visitors and infrastructure.
Storm Irwen poses a risk of travel interruptions, power outages and potential damage, especially in amber areas and near the coast. Large waves can be thrown on coastal roads, coasts and grounds.
Cllr Jim Grieve of the Skaborough Autonomous Region Council, a quality of life minister, said:
“The safety of all involved and their lives must be a top priority.
“Like us, many know that the event isn’t going on, but we look forward to coming back with a much better weather forecast in 2022.”
