THE BURNLEY MAY DAY FESTIVAL
MONDAY 1st MAY 2023
Stalls – marquee or field
Applications are invited for a stall in the marquee or on the field. Stalls in the marquee include a trestle table of approximately 2 metres by 1 metre and two folding chairs. These cost £10 for trade unions, campaign groups and charities or £20 for trade.
Tables and chairs can only be supplied inside the marquee. If you wish to book a place on the field you need to bring your own tables and chairs, gazebos etc. There is no restriction on stall size on the field and the price will depend on the size booked. Charities etc £10 per 2 metre area, trade £20 per 2 metre area. Special arrangements can be made for bigger stalls, just contact me, details above.
Payment should be made with the booking with cheques made out to “Burnley May Day Committee”. The official opening is at 1pm after the arrival of the parade but most people set up in the morning from around 11am onwards and the public start arriving soon after this. On arrival stall holders should contact the information area in the marquee to find out where you’ve been allocated. Stall holders are asked to keep their stall area clear of rubbish and all stalls will be supplied with a bin bag for this purpose. If you are having a stall on the field that involves a vehicle, you will need to be in place by 11am to avoid moving vehicles when the public are in attendance.
