Northampton Saints have cancelled their Christmas Carols evening planned for Wednesday night due to forecasted severe weather.
Nearly 1,000 people were expected to attend and stadium manager Andy Tresias said moving indoors was not an option.
“Unfortunately, the weather is just too severe tonight. Of course there are indoor spaces here at Franklin’s Gardens, but with as many as 500 already confirmed in attendance as well as many more planning on heading down on the night we simply do not have a big enough space to accommodate everyone.
“We had to consider everyone’s safety and in the end we had no choice but to cancel the evening.”
