Applications are now open for handmade stallholders at The Jubilee Centre alongside the 2018 Lark in the Park Family Festival, which will take place on Saturday, 14th July 2018 on The Jubilee Field in Mildenhall, Suffolk from 11am to 4pm.
- What is ‘Lark in the Park’ ?
This free and family-friendly festival is one of Mildenhall (Suffolk) most popular events, with last year’s event attracting more than 4000 people. Upon request from Mildenhall Parish Council, I will organise a craft fair of an average of 40-50 handmade vendors (depending on layout) at The Jubilee Centre. The Parish Council will organise the Jubilee Field with music and entertainment, fair grounds rides, food trailers, vintage vehicles alongside demonstrations and games from local businesses, associations and clubs.
- About the indoor craft fair
The Jubilee Centre is an indoor venue and should be attendees first stop. Stallholders set up will exceptionally start at 9am. The event will start from 11am to 4pm. Packing up will start at 4pm and not any earlier. Parking will be free. Electricity, sides (ex: hanging rail) and Wi-Fi will be available at no extra charge and upon availability, space and safety. Stall fees will remain : £15 per stall. Your stall will only be confirmed upon payment of your stall fees. I won’t hold any tables at any given time. All booking forms will be answered and processed on a first come first serve basis. In the event, you have to cancel your booking please let me know as soon as possible by email so I can contact the reserve list. Cancellations, for whatever reasons 3 months prior to this particular event are non refundable (14th April 2018 included). Fees are not transferable. I have 30 rectangular tables available. Among those 30 tables I have 2 sizes available : 6ft by 2ft and 5ft by 3ft. If you happen to be allocated a rectangular table I won’t be able to tell you which size applies to your stall upon set up arrival on the day. Therefore, please be flexible with your table set up. Once all rectangular tables will be sold, we’ll have to use round 5ft tables. If you wish to book yourself a round table or to bring your own table please state it under the requirements section of the online booking form. Chairs will be provided. Prior to the event, I highly recommend you look into public liability insurance if you haven’t already. We are expecting a large crowd. If you happen to already have a public liability insurance please make sure you know exactly what you are covered for and adjust accordingly your policy if necessary. The venue and myself are insured.
If you are interested in taking part in the indoor craft fair please send me a booking form as soon as possible at : www.thestickyfingers.co.uk In the event section please quote ‘Lark in the Park’ and please let me know any requirements such as sides, disabilities (visible or not) and potential number of helpers.
- What if I want a stall outside ?
In the event you’d rather be outside on The Jubilee Field please contact Nicola Glading (Clerk of Mildenhall Parish Council). She will provide you with details and appropriate booking form. You will need to bring your own gazebo, table(s) and chair(s). Public liability will be required and will need to cover outdoor event(s). I do not have any further information about price(s) or space(s) available. The Parish Council is likely to pick someone local that would be able to demonstrate a skill and get the public involved. I am not in charge of any outdoor bookings. You are most welcome to quote my name if you have previously participated in any of TSF Crafts and Gifts Fairs.
