Chichester Christmas Market
We are looking forward to bringing our Christmas Market to Chichester once again. This event has been fantastically successful in previous years and we’re confident that 2014 will see us developing and building on its popularity. The Chichester Christmas Market covers a period of nine days in the busiest period leading up to Christmas. This is a very prestigious and extremely busy city centre in one of the finest locations in the south. Like the Chichester Garden Show, the Chichester Christmas Market is held in the pedestrianised heart of the city centre. Our stands are positioned in East Street and North Street, the busiest area of the city. This is a fantastic opportunity to offer your products to very large numbers of people in this busy and prosperous area.
Although some exhibitors will be allowed to take part in the whole event, we will again be dividing it into two “sessions” in order to allow customers to see some “new faces” when they visit for the second time. We arrange high levels of publicity and extra features and attractions which make this a very high profile event. With radio, press and Internet advertising over a wide area, thousands of leaflets and posters, “AA” signage etc., this great event is very hard to miss!
Demand for space is always high and although we are hoping to be able to offer some extra stands this year, the available space is limited so early applications are highly recommended. Preference will be given to high quality crafts, unusual products not readily available in the shops and to quality seasonal gifts and decorations. Craft makers will be particularly welcome but the Christmas Market is open to some non-makers. Selection is based on various factors but stand presentation is particularly important so photographs are helpful. We will also need accurate information about your products in order to avoid conflict with the shops. All applications will need to be approved so please be careful to mention all types of product on your application forms.
We provide covered stands for exhibitors. Double stands may be available and it may be possible to use your own cabin, stall or gazebo if it is suitably smart – please ask before completing the application form for this event.
We erect our stands for you so you should have nothing to worry about except setting up your display and decorating your stand. However, do bear in mind that outdoor events can be affected by bad weather.
Every stallholder will be responsible for lighting and decorating their stand in an attractive manner to contribute to the overall impression of the event. Christmas decorations and lights on each stall make a big difference to the festive atmosphere. Please do not apply unless you are prepared to decorate your stall adequately. A few strands of tinsel are NOT sufficient!
|Each stall will be provided with an electricity supply (maximum 500 watts).
Overnight security officers will be present and you should be able to leave your stand set up over night but this is of course at your own risk.
Each session is bookable separately but exhibitors can apply for both sessions.
