Our Christmas event is outdoors in our own wooden stalls, 2.5m by 2.5m (8ft by 8ft) with the addition of a wooden porch and fully opening bi-fold front doors to allow additional display space.
The stalls all have a pitched roof, back and sides which can also be used for additional display purposes. Pictures/dimensions are available on request.
Stock may be left overnight, at your own risk, as security will be operating.
Detailed exhibitor information will be sent by email prior to the event covering the rules and regulations of participation. This will be followed by a further email, closer to the start date of the Christmas Market, advising of allocated setting up times, stall area and directions. Your stall position is at our discretion and you will be advised of your exact stall location on your arrival on site.
We have also introduced a Bond refundable if there was no damage to our stalls and all the terms and conditions of participation are followed including the standard expected of stall display and lighting, no discarded rubbish and both set up and pack down instructions are adhered to in full.
Public Liability Insurance of £5,000,000 is mandatory in order to participate.
Agreement of Craft*folK Terms and Conditions and completion of a Fire Risk Assessment, Criteria and Data Protection forms are also mandatory in order to participate.
Craft*folK reserves the right to refuse any booking whatsoever and Craft*folK further reserves the right to cancel any booking which may have been accepted, without any reason being given or discussions entered into.
Participation and stall allocation at our Christmas Market is at our discretion, in conjunction with Local Authorities. To ensure that this event is as diverse, fresh and unique as possible each application will be assessed on an individual basis. To also assist in achieving this aim the “first come first served” basis will no longer apply with waiting lists being operated for the more popular over-subscribed crafts. Whilst exclusivity of goods cannot be guaranteed we take great care to ensure that the number of similar crafts is limited in order to give everyone a level platform in order to achieve sales.
We look forward to your participation in 2019 and please don’t hesitate to ring us for a chat if you need any advice or have any additional queries.
Craft*folK Criteria for non-taster stalls
All products must be created/made by the exhibitor/s and/or family member/s with a strong measure of artistic integrity and individuality in their work
If specifically designed by the exhibitor then there must be an appreciative amount of collaboration between designer and fabricator in order to justify participation
If the exhibitor has altered, adapted or assembled the products then there must be a very high ‘added value’ content to the finished article
Priority will always be given to those exhibitors who make their own products as we are committed to ensuring the perpetuation of ‘handmade’work
To maintain the quality of products you may be asked to clarify this criteria
Our decision with regards to acceptance is final
If you have any queries regarding the safety of your goods Trading Standards are very helpful. Please note that they may also inspect your goods at events.
All crafts people must also certify that they are carrying adequate Public Liability Insurance of at least £5,000,000 in connection with their attendance and with the sale and usage of their goods and by application do so warrant.
