RETAIL ONLY STALLS

We can provide space for you to set up a stall and sell your wares or food on the outside paved patio but there is limited access to power because of the historic nature of the site. 

Please email a description of your trade, what/if you’d like to sell, 2-5 images of items, copy of current public liability certificate, willingness to provide demonstrations during event, power needs (your electrical cords need to be tagged), vehicle unloading & loading requirements to [email protected]l.com.au

– Set up between 8-10 am on Friday in the front foyer of the Albert Hall.
– Please bring a small power board and extension cord for electricity – you may wish to bring a lamp to highlight your goods as there is mediocre lighting very high in the ceiling. All electrical items must be tagged and available for inspection.

If you are marketing more than one day you are requested to pack up your stall and store your wares in a private room away from the public overnight, or in lidded boxes under your table.

All stallholders: are asked to donate an item/s for our lucky raffle basket drawn on Saturday night.
