Stalls are now available for the Hopeful & Glorious Winter Art Fair at Lytham Hall. Please read all of the information, terms and conditions before applying.

The small print.
If you are offered a stand, the fee should be paid in full within 10 days. We accept cheque payments or BACs. This is non-refundable. Once payment is received we will feature your work on the website and publicity.
The stall area you are offered must accommodate all of your stall including table and any print racks, display boards etc.
As this is an event to promote the work of artists, makers and designers, all the products on the stand should be created by the artist/s represented on the stand.
We do not accept imported work.
We do accept makers who only work to commission.
Publicity and promotion of a successful event requires the effort of artist, venue and Hopeful & Glorious. All artists are expected to add information to their websites, social media etc. and mailing lists/customers. Flyers and posters are available.
Please bring your own materials to dress your stall – please consider Health & Safety issues during the setup /take-down and inspect your stall regularly for potential hazards.
Artists are responsible for their own public liability insurance and if appropriate PAT testing for their products, equipment and stall. It is the artists’ responsibility to display your work safely and appropriately with full responsibility for the liability of products and the public in relation to the stall. Any breakages are the responsibility of the artist.
Please note there is no stall lighting – just overhead room lighting. All electrical appliances will need to be under warranty or PAT tested and it is the artist’s responsibility to make sure all sockets are switched off at the end of the day.
Indoor stalls may be left up overnight on Saturday as the rooms will be locked from 4.30pm. However, we do not accept any responsibility for loss or damage to any property left overnight.
In the unlikely event of very strong winds (over 55 mph) it may be necessary to delay the start of the fair or to close early as the site would be deemed unsafe for the public. In this eventuality no refunds will be given, please take appropriate insurance if required.
There is some limited wi-fi in the Hall. If makers are unable to connect to this, they may use Lytham Hall’s credit/debit card facility for a small transaction and handling charge (around 5% debit/credit cards with a minimum charge of £1.75 per transaction).
Admission to the fair is free for visitors however Lytham Hall will be charging a small car parking fee.
Booking confirmations are only final once we have made a stall offer and full payment has been received.
The arrangement of tables and pitch allocation is at the discretion of the organisers and the organiser’s decision is final. Special requests for specific pitch locations will only be considered once all the bookings are confirmed.
We politely request that in respect of other stallholders each stall should have no more than2 people behind the stall at any one time.
Stallholders must dispose of their own rubbish and ensure that your allocated space is left clean and tidy, leaving only the furniture provided by the venue.
Strictly nothing is to be attached/stuck to the venue walls. Exhibitors will be held responsible for any damage that they cause to the venue and the exhibitor will be charged for the full cost of repair or replacement.
Cancellations – if a maker needs to cancel their booking after payment has been made the following payments will be made
Final set up details, parking and unloading details are forwarded to each maker 2 weeks prior to the event.
