This year’s Chapel Allerton Arts Festival will be held on Saturday 2nd September and Sunday 3rd September. The Stalls market will be in Well Lane and will operate between 11.00am and 5.00pm on Saturday, then between 12.00 noon and 5.00pm on Sunday.
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. 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 adjacent to the stalls pitches. 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 3 metre pitch. All gazebos must be in sound condition and held down using professionally made weights. We reserve the right to ask you take down any structure which we believe to be unsafe.
Saturday stallholders can set up from 9.00am and the market is open from 11am. Sunday set up will be from 10.00am, with the market opening at 12 noon. Closing time is 5.00pm, and we ask people to be packed up by 5.30pm.
Traffic access is via Town Street at the bottom of the site, and will flow one way up Well Lane. All vehicles must be off site by 11.00am. Parking is not provided, but there is on street parking in surrounding streets. Vehicles will be allowed back on site after 5.00pm.
How much does it cost?
We have 2 rates:
- £45 per day for commercial stalls
- £25 per day 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 19th 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. “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 will 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
You are responsible for protecting your goods and any other materials from the weather; we do not provide any form of wet weather cover, neither do we take any responsibility for any damage caused by weather. No refunds or compensation will be offered in the event of bad weather.
Public liability insurance
You are liable for any consequences arising from the sale of your goods and/or the activities taking place on your concession. We expect you to take an appropriate level of public liability insurance to cover you against any legal liabilities arising from these activities.
