Market to move to Queens Square for Christmas

Crawley’s Friday and Saturday market will move to Queens Square for the busy Christmas shopping period, ahead of the area’s major £3.2m facelift.

Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development at Crawley Borough Council, said: “There isn’t a specialist Christmas market in the square this year so I’m sure stallholders will be delighted to trade there, especially when our festive events are taking place on Saturdays in the run-up to Christmas, giving the square an even greater buzz.”

Martlets Tree sculpture moving to library

The Martlets Tree sculpture will move from Queens Square to Crawley Library next year.

The move; which West Sussex County Council confirmed this week, will enable the regeneration of Queens Square to take place and provide a more appropriate location for the artwork, which was installed in 1999.

The sculpture will be cleaned and repaired off-site before it is relocated outside the library on Southgate Avenue.

It celebrates the heraldic origin of the Martlets, which feature in the town’s coat of arms, and includes more than 100 tiny Martlet birds.
