Traders (non food)

The markets at The Cornbury Music Festival form an integral part of the enjoyment of the festival. We are looking for original, quality stalls, which are presented and serve customers in a friendly and fun manner.

The Festival will take place on a beautiful site at Great Tew over 3 days – Friday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th July 2018.

Should your application be successful, you will need to let us know when you will be arriving to set up. Slots available will be Tuesday 10th July PM, Wednesday 11th AM and Wednesday 11th PM. You will be expected to trade from 9am to Midnight each day.

There will be NO VEHICLE movement allowed in the arena until 8am on Monday 16th July.

If you are unable to set up on either Tuesday or Wednesday, or need to exit the arena in a vehicle before Monday at 8am please do NOT apply to trade.

As always, we will attempt to keep ‘overlap’ to a minimum, so that traders are not in direct competition with each other. However, please understand that there may be some items on offer from more than one stand. Traders must only sell goods specified in their application at the price specified. Any changes to the application form must be made in writing to the Festival Office at least 2 weeks prior to the festival.

The charge for stalls is £120 (plus VAT) per metre or part metre stall frontage. For example, a stall with a 3 metre frontage will cost £360 plus VAT, whilst a stall with a 3.2 metre frontage will cost £480 plus VAT (ie. you would pay for a 4m frontage). Please remember that VAT is 20%!

If your application is successful, you will only be allocated the space that you have asked and paid for, so when filling in the application form, please be ACCURATE with your pitch measurements. Please INCLUDE any space required for your vehicles, or any space needed either side of your stall in your measurements. If your stall is 3m wide but you need to spill part of another metre either side, then you will need to pay for 4m. There will be virtually no space for tents behind pitches but camping is available (free of charge) on the main campsite. Pitch depth is 10 metres – we will NOT accept any applications where the stall depth is greater than 10 metres.

A 16amp power supply will be provided to each pitch, free of charge.

If you would like more than one stall, please complete an application form for each site.

Application forms must be completed by Friday 30th March 2018. Successful applicants will be contacted by email after this date, and will subsequently be required to send a cheque for the full amount according to the size of their stall. Full payment will be required by Friday 4th May 2018 at the very latest.

For those of you who have supported us over the last few years, we look forward to welcoming you back. And for those of you who will be new in 2018, we hope Cornbury proves to be both enjoyable and successful for you.
