Rules and Regs

OK there are a few Rules and Regulations - aren't there always - but I'll try to make it as simple as possible.

1. Crafters have to have made all goods for sale themselves, unless agreed beforehand with the organiser.

2. It is a condition of our own insurance policy that Crafters will also have to have their own Insurance and Public Liability cover. (For info: I have found that by subscribing to 'a-n' that their membership also provides insurance cover.  You can contact them via their website or by phone on 0191 241 8000). Any stall selling food items must confirm with the organiser in advance how they comply with current UK food hygiene legislation.

3. Set up will be from 8.30am.  You can arrive before this time, but there is no guarantee that your table will be ready until 8.30am. Set-up needs to be completed by 10am. Tear-down can only start after the fair closes at 4pm.

4. No raffles, tombolas, lotteries or prize draws will be allowed unless previously agreed with the organiser.

5. The fair is open to the general public from 10.00am - 4.00pm.   Stall holders must be present throughout this period.

6. Car park facilities are excellent - with ample free space.

7. Could all stall holders keep their area clean and tidy by removing all their rubbish etc at the end of the show.  Failure to leave the hall tidy may result in not being welcome to exhibit with us again. Please hide your packing cases, boxes etc by having a cloth on your table that reaches to the ground.

8. Please ensure that neither you nor your table and goods block any fire exit from the hall.

9. There are a limited number of tables available - these will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.

10. A £10 non refundable deposit for each month booked is payable with the booking with the balance due one month prior to each show. The organiser reserves the right not to accept bookings for any reason, and to reallocate space not paid in full by the due date.

11. Stall holders should not arrange their own replacements if they are unable to attend. This is in fairness to stall holders on any waiting lists that are maintained by the organiser.

12. If the event is cancelled by the organiser then any payments received will be refunded in full.  If the stall holder cancels more than one month before the event then the booking fee less deposit will be refunded.  If cancelled less than one month before the show no money can be refunded.

13. If electricity is required this needs to be stated at the time of booking. There are limited stall spaces with access to 13Amp electric sockets. All electrical equipment used by the stall holder must be PAT tested.  

14. The organiser accepts no liability for loss of earnings as a result of any circumstances, nor any other action by any third party beyond their control.
