Trade & Charity

Book your stall

Many local organisations have stallsnds on the carnival field, and with around 5000 members of the public attending , it's a great way to do some fundraising or promote what you do.  Charity, craft and commercial pitches are available.

The nature of stalls is monitored to avoid duplication or too many similar stalls.  The pitch sizes are approximately 3m x 6m and will be clearly defined.  Unfortunately,  there will be no way of increasing this allocation on the day.

If you would like to have a stall on Carnival Day please complete our online form and payment.  If your application is unsuccessful, all payments will be returned in full.  The committee's decision is final. Each pitch is 3m (frontage) x 6m (depth)


This year we have 3 classes of stalls, Charity, Craft, and Commercial.

Definition of "Charity Stalls":   For the self-promotion of a local charity or group.
Definition of "Craft Stall":   Is someone who creates or makes unique items/objects with a high degree of hand-made, physical and/or intellectual input using traditional or contemporary skills.
Definition of "Commercial Stall":   There is sufficient "service to customer".

Pitch prices

  • Charity £30
  • Craft £40
  • Commercial £100

What you need to bring

The carnival team will mark out the pitches, and allocate one to you according to your requirements.  They will also site waste bins strategically around the field and especially near to food outlets for public use, please take your rubbish home at the end of the day.  You will need to provide everything else.  Most stallholders bring a gazebo, tables (and chairs if they need them) plus whatever it is that they do or sell.  If you have any special requirements then bring them to our attention when booking using the additional information box.
