Stalls and Stands Applications for Echoes of History 2023
Please wait for a confirmation email from our stalls team to ensure your space is earmarked and your stall has been accepted, before making any arrangements.
We reserve the right to restrict certain types of stands or stalls in order to keep a balance in line with the show theme.
If you intend to sell food or drink in any form you will need to be registered with the Local Authority where your business is based. You need to have a letter from them confirming your registration which needs to be shown to us with your other paperwork. We will need to take a copy of this and may be asked to submit this to the Local Authority.
You also need to advise us of the following:
- Trading Name of Food Business
- Address of Food Business
- Contact Details for the Food Business Operator
(name, telephone number and email address of the person in charge of the food)
- Local Authority where business is registered
- Food Hygiene Rating (FHRS score)
We will send all the information to the Food Safety Team at Maldon Council who will check that the information is correct and that the business is trading legally.
Stalls will only be fully confirmed once a copy of your public liability insurance certificate and payment has been received - in the case of traders who sell edible goods, additional proof of registration with Maldon Council will be required.
All traders are required to complete an application form in order to trade at the show.
Wristbands will be available from the Booking in Tent near the Exhibitors entrance. Entry for up to three people per booking is included. Others will be charged show entry prices unless prior arrangements have been made. Additional wristbands can be purchased from the Booking in Tent on arrival. Wristbands cannot be issued on behalf of another and must be secured before proceeding onto the show ground. They will be checked by Security and Echoes of History Staff while on site. If you are not wearing a wristband you will not be served at the Bar or Catering Facilities outside of show hours and will be escorted to the Booking in Tent to purchase one.
It is against the Law to sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18. Please ensure you have proof of age available on arrival if requested by a member of either the Security or Echoes of History Staff when being issued wristbands.
The pitch sizes stated are the maximum available, unless multiple pitches are booked. All vehicles must be within the boundaries of the pitch - additional parking is available if needed away from your pitch site. In the case of a 3m pitch, it will be unlikely to be suitable for both a stall and car combined
and these pitches will be mid row, rather than end spaces. We aim to give a minimum of 7m depth for our stalls this is with the potential of more space after a site visit.
You will therefore be expected to put your vehicle in the public or exhibitors car park during the event. For corner or end of row stalls of larger stalls, please contact us
once you have booked.
Stall holders can set up from Thursday the 10th of August, but we will be closed to the general public until Saturday.
You will be able to arrive on Thursday the 10th after 14.00 hours and MUST vacate the site by 12.00 hours on Monday the 14th of August.
If you are applying using the paper form, please ensure you send your completed form, a copy of your Public Liability Insurance Certificate and your cheque made out to:
