Feedback from previous stall holders: Lovely atmosphere ... 
Extremely helpful helpers ... extremely well organised ... I am disabled and was particularly grateful for getting me coffees and assisting with carrying stuff, and all with a genuine smile ... There were a lot of interesting crafts - a very good selection's always nice to be given tea/coffee vouchers ... Fantastic facilities (certainly compared to some I have seen) ... clean bright and welcoming ... steady flow of traffic.

Publicity  To promote the event to a wide range of customers, a large banner will be on the outside of the venue 2 weeks before, we will be publicising as part of a mail drop to over 4,000 local households and parents in local schools.  Also posters to key venues, promoting on all local events websites, and making full use of our proven social networking links.

Cost  Our table fee of £25 includes a 5.5/6 ft table with 2 chairs (and a limited number of stalls will have a wall behind them to display items).  You will need to supply a suitable covering to cover the front and sides of your table. (Please see below for terms and conditions).  We now have public internet access, for your card machines.

Stalls  We will have a minimum of 20 stalls, and can expand this up to 35; we are looking for an exciting mix of craft stalls so do make a booking request to us as soon as you can!   Sorry no food stalls. Depending on the products you are selling we may ask to see your insurance cover.

Other key ingredients for success  Building on the reputation of last craft fairs, and our very successful ‘in house’ Christmas Bazaar, we will support this event a tempting café with simple lunches and cake stall.  And of course the craft workshop for children!
