Street food served from pop-up kitchens and artisan groceries will tempt the taste buds whilst a selection of craft beers, ales and ciders served from festival bars, as well as prosecco and wine will be available to quench the thirst. 

In addition to the grocery stalls there will be stalls selling a variety of products including colourful artisan products and items for the garden!

Traders: Interested in have a presence at the Festival?

They do still have some trader space at the Festival, although it is subject to availability as they try to avoid product duplication. They would welcome local producers, and those living within a 20 mile radius of the event would qualify for a 25% discount on their pitch.

They have a on-line booking process: 

It takes less than 5 minutes to complete the initial registration, and then a couple of minutes to apply for the event.
