Applications for Stallholders 2018 NOW CLOSED


Friends of Chislehurst Recreation Ground would love you and your business to join the fun at our 2018 Chislehurst Rocks festival. Our festival has a good mix of food, drink, activities and merchandise for sale with a 2017 attendance of over 5,000.

A stall is where you will sell your brilliant merchandise, food or drink or tell people about your amazing business!  A single standard pitch is 3m x 3m and will be held for a deposit of £25. Multiple pitches are possible for multiple deposit amounts. Balance of 20% of takings is due at the end of the event less your deposit amount. 

A workshop is where you give a taster demonstration, class or workshop for free a few times on the festival day.  Providing a workshop will give you great publicity and connect you with the people who are interested in your classes or service!  Your free sessions will help develop your audience and promote your business.  Workshops are generally free of charge, but all other stall rules (form, public liability insurance and any other certificate or licenses appropriate to your business) will apply. 

Please see What's On for access instructions and the link at the bottom of this article for site rules. Remember that it is first come, first served for each type of stallholder / workshop - whoever gets their application, payment and paperwork completely in to us first, gets in. Please share this information with anyone who you think would add to our festival event.
