Pricing and registration
We do not charge a fixed fee for a catering stall. Our fee is 15% of your sales.
Unlike traders, caterers cannot choose their own location. This is because we have to make sure there is a balanced supply of meat, vegetarian and vegan food as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks throughout the venue. We will contact you after the application to discuss the available options.
CATERING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2019 EDITION ARE NOW CLOSED. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN AUGUST 2019 WHEN REGISTRATIONS FOR THE 2020 EVENT WILL OPEN.
