Terms and Conditions.
How to Apply
Crafters Market dates are released in blocks and Stallholders are able to apply for all of them or simply choose preferred dates. Please use the steps below to ensure you have reserved your stall.
1) Fill in our online booking form complete with links to your social media pages. Once we have received your booking form we will consider your application as we endeavour to have a varied market with high quality craft stalls. Stallholders must design and/or hand make their products – please note that general traders will not be accepted as the Crafters Market is for handcrafted items only.
2) Once you receive confirmation from us of the dates you have been allocated you will be sent an invoice requesting payment within 7 working days to secure your place. Once payment has been received, we will forward a receipt.
3) If you apply for all dates, we may only be able to offer one date due to demand from other stallholders. Please note that we will endeavour to accommodate requests as much as is possible.
The cost of a stall is as follows:
£28 per stall
A 6ft trestle table can be provided (if required) for an additional £5.
Any extra space required will need to be requested in your booking form and will incur an extra charge of around £5 depending upon space required and availability.
If you wish to cancel any of your bookings up to 4 weeks before the event, then we will be able to issue you a refund. Unfortunately, refunds on cancellations after this time will not be possible. We do appreciate that sometimes people are simply unable to come along at such short notice so please advise us of a last minute cancellation by email firstname.lastname@example.org
In the unlikely event of The Crafter’s Market cancelling the event all stallholder’s money for the event will be fully refunded. The Crafter’s Market will only cancel an event if the venue is no longer useable or the venue themselves cancel the booking. We will do our very best to insure this does not happen.
Please note no refund will be given in the event of poor weather conditions, poor attendance or sales.
What you will be selling
Stallholders will only be permitted to sell articles as stated on the application form and all items must be designed and/or handmade by the Stallholder.
The Organisers reserve the right to ask Stallholders to remove certain items if they were not stated beforehand and are not handmade.
The Crafter's Market is for handcrafted items only and as such, general traders will not be accepted.
We work to get as many people through the doors as possible, but all promotion helps however small, so we ask you to promote the event as much as you can though social media, posters in your work place, flyers to friends, posters in cars etc… it really does all help.
As our name states, this really is ‘your market’ – The Crafter’s Market. Please help us to keep it the lovely local event it has become.
All instructions including information parking will be emailed to Stallholders 1 week before. Please take the time to read the instructions as to where to unload and park your car during the markets. This is to allow time for all Stallholders to have access for unloading, making the set-up of the markets as stress free as possible. If you hold a disabled badge please let us know beforehand and we will do what we can to help with the parking and unloading.
Timings for each market will also be included in the instructions emailed 1 week before. This will include set-up and clear down times. Please DO NOT TAKE DOWN YOUR STALL until the advertised finishing time without asking us first. If a Stallholder leaves before the end of the event, we may choose not to let you sell again at future markets.
We plan our layouts a few days in advance and take care to avoid placing items such as jewellery in close proximity to each other. Please note we are not able to discuss and rearrange the layout on the day. All requests on your booking forms will be taken into account and will be granted if possible dependant on space.
You will be able to book your pitch per table, if you wish to use a rail we ask that you request this via your booking form and you will need to pay for the extra space used. If you use more space than you have been allocated on the day we will ask you to reduce your stall size or pay an additional hire fee.
We aim to keep the space a safe place for shoppers and stall holders and request that you leave the gap free between you and your neighbouring stall, please do not fill it with any items that may block the route. We also ask that you keep all belongings away from hallways and other communal areas. Please try to have a table cloth that reaches down to the ground in order to cover up any storage you may have beneath your table.
We have a set pitch fee for the market but this does not include a table. If you require a table you will need to hire one from us for an additional price of £5 using the booking form. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own table as long as it is no bigger than 6ft by 3ft. Please note we have a limited amount of tables so it will be first come first served.
Two chairs will be provided as part of your pitch and will be in your space with your name card reserving your pitch on the day of the market.
Stallholders must ensure that any electrical appliances brought onto the Premises in connection with the Event shall be safe and in good working order. They must be used in a safe manner and have been tested in accordance with current safety testing requirements (PAT tested) by a certified electrician. Please state if you would like to bring any electrical equipment with you on your booking form.
We cannot guarantee access to electrical sockets so please specify if you need one, we will do our best to accommodate these requests.
Public Liability Insurance
In order to hold The Crafter’s Market we legally require our Stallholders to have their own £5million public liability insurance. Please send us a copy of your insurance when you first book a stall with us. Without a copy of this, we regret we will be unable to confirm your booking.
Removal of Waste
Stallholders are responsible for the removal of their own waste from site.
Nutfield Lodge is a non-smoking venue.
You are responsible for your stock and belongings. We will do our best to ensure nothing like this happens but please understand that we cannot be held responsible for any issues such as theft or damage carried out by visitors to the event.
