If you are interested in applying for a stall, please read the event information, terms and conditions and complete the online form. If you cannot complete the online form, please email email@example.com for a Word version to complete.

We will select artists to reflect a high quality, diverse range of artworks and environmental sustainability. This is a fair where visitors expect to find unique gifts for Christmas created by the makers taking part. Our fairs receive a high number of maker applications. We may decline your application if it is too close in subject, style or craft to another artist that we have already accepted. Please see Terms & Conditions.
We try to absorb the increased costs to run the event where possible but to make that practical we ask that makers respect the following:
Our most cost-effective stall is the Bring Your Own Gazebo option. There are some single day stall options subject to availability.
Makers are encouraged to bring their own card payment machines as there is no central card payment facility.
Upper West Wing is situated within the first floor across two rooms. Access is available by stairs or lift. Lighting is subdued, so it is recommended that you bring your own stall lighting. This is the largest area of stalls.
The kitchen is situated just off the Courtyard. The large former kitchen is on the ground floor.
We are not using the smaller Beater’s room.
The outdoor courtyard is sheltered, with an over-hanging roof. This is a popular space which has good footfall and enables makers who would prefer to be outdoors with a good level of shelter from the weather.
The grassed oval provides a designated space for makers gazebos. There are no electric hook ups so you will need to bring your own battery powered lighting, chargers etc. Maximum space 3m x 3m. This is the third year that we are using this area. The location is an informal grassy area close to the Garden Hub and only a short walk from the other stall areas. As this is outside, please be prepared to wear suitable clothing appropriate for any weather. Walking/warm boots are recommended. You may wish to bring your own battery powered outdoor lighting for the end of the day.
It is only fair that makers occupy only the area that you have paid for. If you require space around your stall you will need to book the area you need in advance. We will not allow any structures, print racks, clothes stands, side tables or displays which go beyond your agreed stall area unless this has been arranged and paid for in advance.
If you have any questions about the above stall options, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t contact the hall directly. The hall is hired by us, and they will not be able to provide any detail on stall options, locations, or event specific information. We cannot be held responsible for information provided by the venue /third party that may not be correct.
Indoor stalls include a chair and table (unless you have opted to bring your own). We provide social media graphics for makers to use.
