Apply for Non-Food Stalls
This year’s Chapel Allerton Arts Festival is on tour. We are relocating to the field adjacent to the Gledhow Sports and Social Club, on Gledhow Lane, LS8 1NQ, for Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th September. On the Saturday the focus will be on family entertainment, Sunday is our day of Jazz.
This year we are offering pitches on both Saturday and Sunday. Admission to the festival will be by ticket only, and numbers will be limited, however it is a large site, with great space for social distancing. To reflect the smaller numbers and the change of location, we are reducing the price of stalls for this year’s event.
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 2.5 metre pitch. Gazebos need to be secured, either by weights, or by pegs, as we will be on a grassy pitch.
Stallholders can set up from 10 am and the market is open from 12 noon. Closing time is 8 pm, stallholders may stay open for the full session, or pack up whenever they feel appropriate. Anyone booking a pitch for both days, you are welcome to leave your gazebo in place, but this would be at your own risk.
There is limited car parking on site, and the stalls pitches should be easily accessed from the car park.
How much does it cost?
We have 2 rates :-
- £20 per day for commercial stalls
- £15 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 21 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
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 site 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.
If the event has to be cancelled because of coronavirus restrictions, all fees will be refunded.
