Food Market Applications

How to Apply

For 2024, we are going to have a Food Market with all outside stands who will have their own gazebo/marquee. It will be in the same location as 2023. There will be no separate indoor Food Hall.

There will be a specific entrance into the Food Market with good signage, and again some buggies will operate exclusively from the Main Admissions Gate to the Food Market Area.

The actual layout is still to be decided but you will be advised of your stand location by Charlotte Gurney, Head Steward.   

All Food Market applications must be made online.

The closing date for Applications is Monday 19th August 2024 after which a Late Entry Fee of £75 will apply.

To make an application, fill in the form below and click Submit application.
