Applying for a Trade Stall Pitch at Wessex Folk Festival
Trade pitches are very popular and space is very limited so we can't guarantee a pitch for every applicant. For this reason we apply certain rules and criteria:
We give priority to previous traders
We are very strict about the size of our pitches (3 x 3 metres gazebos only)
We pick trade stalls that we think fit with the folk festival ethos and atmosphere
We are only allowed a certain number of alcohol stalls
We don't duplicate the main type of food on more than one stall
We don't have paper forms to complete for applications but to apply, please complete the contact form and we will get back to you. Payment is made via this website but PLEASE DON'T MAKE ANY PAYMENT UNTIL WE ACCEPT YOUR APPLICATION AND SAY YOU CAN HAVE A PITCH
