Apply for Non-Food Stalls
The market takes place on “Festival Saturday". In 2019 this is 31 August. Stalls are sited along both sides of Well Lane and in one of the adjoining car parks. This is a street market with no cover. The pitches are roughly 2.5 metres long.
What do I need to bring?
We ask you to provide your own table, the dimensions of which should be no larger than 180cm by 70cm. We will provide tables at a cost of £20.00 per table for those unable to provide their own -these are folding "trestle" type tables which measure 180 cm by 70cm. Few parts of the site are completely level. You are obviously welcome to bring chairs. There are no facilities for fixing items or structures to any supports eg walls because there are no walls and we do not have permission from the owners of various parts of the site. There is no electrical supply to the stall pitches.
You are welcome to bring a gazebo but please check beforehand that it will fit into the 2.5 metre pitch. Some parts of the street are wider than others and this may affect/restrict the positioning and use of gazebos. Gazebos need to be secured by weights, as pegs cannot be used on the street.
Stallholders can set up from 9 am and the market is open from 11am. Closing time is 5.30pm, and we ask people to be off site by 6pm.
Cars should enter the site from the Town Street end of Well Lane. Access to the site is limited and it can quickly become congested, so allow plenty of time. Exit is via Regent Street, turning left onto Harrogate Road. All cars need to be off site by 10.45am at the latest. Cars are allowed back after 5pm when the market begins to pack up. We are not able to provide any car parking for stall holders.
How much does it cost?
We have 3 rates :-
- £55 for stalls on Well Lane
- £40 for stalls on the adjacent car park (where there are fewer crowds)
- £25 discount rate for local charities and non profit making organisations.
You can pay in 3 ways:- Bank transfer, via PAYPAL or by cheque.
We will send you an invoice with payment details - all monies should be paid by 17 August, 2 weeks before the festival. If we haven't received your payment by then, we may allocate the stall space to someone else.
What may I have on my stall?
This is a community arts festival with the emphasis on "community" and "arts". We welcome community groups relevant to Chapel Allerton as well as stallholders with arts/crafts to sell. Charities local to Chapel Allerton are welcome. We would like stalls to be as lively, interesting, and interactive as possible. Stallholders may promote their group / organization. We actively discourage "lobbying", but we are happy for you to give information if it is requested. Please do not hand out leaflets and flyers on the street. “Bucket rattling" fundraising by stallholders is not allowed within the terms of our licence. These are "non food" stalls although the sale of homemade items eg buns, as part of fund raising is acceptable. If you are in doubt - please ask.
If a stallholder does not comply with this, and if they fail to make appropriate changes when asked, we reserve the right to ask the stallholder to leave.
In allocating stall space we consider
(i) whether you are local to Chapel Allerton
(ii) the balance of stalls
(iii) the relevance and appropriateness of the stall to a family orientated event
Public Liability Insurance
We require all stallholders to have valid public liability insurance, and will ask for proof of this before the festival.
We want to keep the street litter free, and will give every stall a bin bag for their rubbish. Stallholders should either take it away at the end of the day, or put their rubbish in the festival’s bins, not those belonging to the shops.
To apply for a pitch, please fill in the form. We hope you join us at the festival. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a stall query.
