1. WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We welcome applications from professional designers, makers, artists, artisans and small businesses. Your products should be designed and/or hand made by you and/or your team. Additionally we also accept a small number of boutique traders offering a selection of products from other small makers and independent brands that you have curated yourself. We would also love to hear from vintage/antique traders and plant and flower sellers. High quality products and presentation are essential.
We are not looking for MLM based (or similar) products. We also cannot accept applications from makers using copyrighted materials/imagery/designs without the correct permissions. We are not looking for hot food/drink vendors for our Worsall events.
Traders must have public liability insurance. If your products require safety certificates or registration with a regulatory authority then you must be able to provide the appropriate documentation.
2. HOW ARE STALLS SELECTED?
To ensure the best experience for customers and traders our stalls are selected based on quality, variety and suitability rather than a "first come, first served" basis. We listen to customer feedback and choose stalls we think they will love. We must also work within the constraints of our space. If we're unable to offer you a space initially, we will keep you on our waiting list and of course let you know if a suitable space opens up.
3. WHAT IS THE SET-UP PROCESS?
You have two hours to set up and take down your stalls with easy access from the onsite carpark, there are no steps so trollies can also be easily used and the venue is fully accessible for wheelchair users. Stall holders must be able to stay for the full duration of the event.
4. HOW DO I BOOK AND PAY?
Once stall applications have been received and reviewed we will get in touch to let you know whether or not your application has been successful. We will include booking and payment information in our confirmation email. Stalls are only secured once booking and payment is completed. You may pay via Paypal or bank transfer.
5. IS POWER SUPPLIED?
We cannot guarantee access to a power socket for any stalls. Should you need specific lighting, we recommend that you bring battery operated lights though our venue is bright and well-lit. If you can access one of the sockets at the venue you must have a valid PAT certificate for any item that will be plugged in.
6. IS INSURANCE REQUIRED?
All traders must have valid public liability insurance (up to £5000000) on the day of the event. You will need to supply a digital copy in advance and also bring a printed copy on the day.
7. CAN FOOD VENDORS APPLY?
We do welcome applications from traders offering plant-based food and drink products. The products should be for "take home" consumption only and you will need to be fully registered and insured and able to provide documentation at the point of booking and on the day of the event. We are not looking for hot food/drink vendors for our Worsall events.
8. IS WIFI AVAILABLE?
WIFI is available at our venue for processing card payments. In the event of any technical issues we recommend you have access to mobile data on your payment device as the WIFI supply/connection/router is owned and maintained by the venue owner. We always recommend that our traders accept card payments if possible. There is not an ATM within walking distance.
9. WHICH OTHER FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE?
There will be a tea room onsite offering cakes, light bites and drinks on the day. Our venue is accessible for customers and traders using wheelchairs or mobility aids. There are toilets in the venue including an accessible toilet and baby changing facilities. There is a 25 space carpark outside the venue and further free parking in the village and on the green.
10. HOW IS THE EVENT PROMOTED?
We work very hard to advertise our market both locally and online. We display posters and flyers in local shops and on notice boards, we also hand deliver 2-3k flyers to local homes. Additionally we run multiple paid ads on social media as well as posting about it regularly on our own pages and in appropriate local groups. We also have a website, a mailing list and listings with Google and multiple online event/"what's on" websites. We have been permitted to display a banner just outside of the village for 2 weeks prior to our event too. We will also be promoting our sellers individually on our social media and website platforms. We also ask that traders get involved and spread the word too.
