TASTE OF WICKHAM 2022 APPLICATIONS WILL OPEN SOON!

The deadline for applications is midnight on Monday 31st January 2022.

Please read carefully (even if you have previously had a stall):

This year, Taste of Wickham will be held on Sunday 11th September.

If you would like us to consider you for a stall at the Taste of Wickham you will need to submit an online application.  Each application will be judged on how well it fits in with the ethos of the festival, with priority being given to stall holders which are:

  1. a small, local, independent business
  2. located within 10km of the centre of Wickham or have strong local connections
  3. a member of Wickham Chamber of Trade
  4. proposing a stall activity appropriate for a medieval market square

To ensure that Taste of Wickham is full of variety and appeals to a wide audience, the organisers reserve the right to decline applications from stall holders whose produce or stall activity duplicates that of an existing Wickham Square business or a business whose application has already been accepted.

Pitch Allocation

The Taste of Wickham Stalls Team will allocate pitches.  Each pitch is 3m x 3m and includes a gazebo (let us know if you don’t need one). This year there are a limited number of pitches with electricity which are available on a first come first served basis.  If you would like one, please select this option on the application form and we will let you know about availability when we allocate stalls.

Fees

A regular pitch: £60
A hot food pitch: £90
A chair and table set: £15

Documentation required for your application

To be able to submit your application you will need to upload your PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE certificate (NOT product or employer’s liability).  Very often, public liability insurance is included in the employer’s liability insurance.  If this is the case with your insurance, we will need to see BOTH your certificate (generally the top page of the document) AND the page which shows that you have Public Liability Insurance.  The page might look something like the example below.  You must upload BOTH pages. If we receive the wrong documentation this could delay your application and lose you your pitch.

Deadlines:

Applications will be reviewed after the deadline and successful applications will be notified by the end of March. An invoice for the payment of the stall fee and any additional fees such as chair and table hire will be sent with the notification email and payment will be required within 2 weeks. It will be assumed that the stall is no longer required if payment is not received by the due date noted on the invoice and the stall will be re-released.
