Please provide as much detailed information in your application as possible in order to help us make our selection. Please note that submitting your application does not automatically guarantee you a place. Your application will be assessed by the trading team and we will contact you directly to advise you if a pitch can be offered. We have spaces available for either 3x3mtr or 6x3mtr pitches for traders selling high quality goods i.e. handmade, vintage, produce and/or serving food. • This year we are able to offer entrepreneurial pitches that will be 1x 1mtr. These pitches give new traders the opportunity to sell from a “suitcase” therefore are not big enough for gazebos. We encourage people to bring a garden parasol or big umbrella to cope with our lovely British weather.

  • All 6×3 and 3×3 pitch traders must provide their own gazebo, table & chairs.
  • All gazebos must be set-up correctly, be robust and fit for commercial use.
  • Gazebos need to be suitable for hard standing pitches, please ensure your gazebo is suitable for this.
  • All items on sale must be clearly labelled with prices available for customer’s convenience.
  • All traders must remove their and their customers rubbish from site, failure to do so will mean traders being cancelled from attending any further events.
