The Blackheath Christmas Fair 2016 - Sunday 20 November 10.30am to 5pm - Great Hall, Blackheath Halls SE3 0RQ
We are looking for 45-50 stall holders offering a wide variety of high quality products that may be Fair Trade, hand-made, packaged gourmet food and drink, original designs, and/or bought in stock, appealing to all ages with a sensitive pricing policy. We're particularly keen to hear from artists and those selling unusual or unique gifts, puzzles, kits and craft goods.
As the venue has a bar and café we CANNOT accept stallholders offering food, drink or snacks to be eaten on the premises, neither inside the Great Hall nor outside on the forecourt. This is primarily a gift fair so unsuitable for those wishing to promote their business services.
The DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS is MONDAY 18 APRIL. If you miss this deadline your details will be retained for the following year and a new application form sent out in February 2017.
The Blackheath Christmas Fair is a fundraising event to support the vital work of Age Exchange to transform the lives of those affected by dementia and maintain the Centre, café and community library.
Age Exchange is a registered charity no. 326899.
