Ardingly Booking Form 2017

Ardingly Booking Form 2018

Stallholder Entry Times (please note, times can vary)

Stallholder parking is available on the Monday before the fair from 1pm.  You will be able to sleep in your caravan or vehicle in the queue overnight should you wish.

The gates to the showground open at 5am on Tuesday to admit stallholder's vehicles.

  1.  Two people admitted per pitch.  One extra Exhibitors Pass per pitch may be purchased in advance of the fair at £23 (IACF reserve the right to refuse entry).
  2. One vehicle (including caravan or trailer if applicable) admitted per pitch.

Building Opening Times

Gates to the showground are open at 5am on Tuesday.  Inside stallholders are welcome to arrive at this time and park alongside their building but please note that the Jubilee Hall, Abergavenny Pavilion and Norfolk Pavilion are unlocked at 7am for unloading.

Vehicle Passes

When you buy a pitch you will be issued with one Vehicle Pass which will be posted 10-14 days prior to the fair.  If you prefer to collect your Vehicle Pass at the fair make sure you mention this at the time of booking.

Subject to availability, it is possible to purchase a pitch on the day of the fair (referred to as a Casual Pitch).  We only accept cash payments on the day and the price of a Casual Pitch is at least £15 more than the pre-booked price.

Outside Pitches

Outside Pitches are approximately 4m wide x 8m deep and you must ensure you book enough pitches to accommodate your vehicle and stock.  Most are allocated pitches (the Blue and Green Areas) and the number is painted in white on the ground.  Make sure you set up on the correct pitch and consult a steward if you are unsure.  It is very disruptive to you and other exhibitors if we have to ask you to move your stock because you have set-up on the wrong pitch.  Pitches in the Red Area are not allocated or marked out so you must follow the directions of the stewards on the day and not take up more than your entitled space.

All stock must be displayed within the confines of your pitch.

Do not place any stock in walkways, entrances and exits or roadways.

Stallholders are responsible for customers’ safety within the area of their pitch.
