STALLHOLDER APPLICATIONS

Thank you for your interest in booking a stall at the Taste of Wickham Festival 2024.  

Stallholder applications are now closed and we are only accepting applications for the waiting list. 

About the Taste of Wickham Festival

The Taste of Wickham Festival is a fantastic free day out, with family entertainment, local produce, street food, handmade crafts and gifts, food demonstrations, history talks, community stalls, craft bars, buskers, dancing and live music.

This popular annual festival takes place in the beautiful village square in Wickham, near Fareham, Hampshire. Over 6,000 visitors came along to the event last year, and we continue to grow. This year’s event will be bigger than ever, with new family and live entertainment, additional space for stalls and lots of other exciting activities taking place throughout the village. We are also boosting our marketing activities to a wider geographical area.

We are inviting artisan sellers of all types to apply for a stall. We welcome applications from exceptional stallholders who are passionate about their products and meet our criteria. 65 stalls are available in our local Artisan Marketplace and we are inviting high quality craft, gift and garden businesses to the event, alongside local community organisations.

We are inviting stallholders who are…

  • Primarily artisanal producers & retailers of crafts, food, drink, gift and garden-related businesses – and are based in Hampshire and the South of England.
  • Local community organisations and businesses who offer services to local residents.
  • Selling products which clearly indicate the provenance or origin of the product, so visitors can easily identify local and world produce.
  • Demonstrating active local sourcing where and when products are available from within the South or proof of provenance from another country.
  • Using eco-friendly / biodegradable / recyclable food packaging and provide their own ample facilities for refuse and recycling.

Due to our existing pubs on Wickham Square, we are unable to accept applications from stallholders selling alcohol ‘by the glass’ or to drink onsite. Stallholders selling bottled products will be considered.  

Gazebos, power & equipment onsite

Please note that we no longer supply equipment on the day and all stallholders must bring their own equipment.

Stallholders need to ensure they bring everything needed for a successful day.

The pitch fee is for the ground only. No power, gazebos, water, power or equipment is available to hire in advance, or borrow on the day.

Stalls are now full. We can accept applications to join the waiting list only.
