WE ARE SORRY TO CONFIRM THAT DESPITE OUR BEST EFFORTS TO ORGANISE A SAFE AND VIABLE EVENT, RECENT NEWS OF THE PANDEMIC AND THE PROSPECT OF MORE LOCKDOWNS AND RESTRICTIONS HAVE FORCED US TO MAKE THE SAD DECISION TO CANCEL THE EVENT FOR THIS YEAR. BOOKING DETAILS ARE LEFT FOR YOU TO READ BELOW AS THEY WILL GIVE A ROUGH GUIDE TO BOOKING PROCESSES AND PRICES FOR NEXT YEAR (2021) FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT BOOKED WITH US BEFORE.
Set up is on Thursday 5th November 2020. Trading days are Friday, Saturday and Sunday 6th - 8th November 2020.
We will be opening to the public 10am to 4.30pm on the Friday and Saturday, then from 11.10am to 4.00pm on Remembrance Sunday when craftworkers will be invited to observe the Silence at 11.00am prior to trading.
Potential stallholders who register with us will all be vetted to ensure that our event is a high-quality, genuine crafts event and not all registrants may receive an invitation to choose a stall. However, this is not the only reason and craftworkers should not assume that they are not eligible for future events if they did not receive an invitation to this year's as factors like balancing the types of craft on show also play a part.
Stall Prices are as follows...
Single table £159 / 'L-shape' Double - (made up of two tables) £243 / Outdoor Gazebo £139 / Bespoke Arrangements can be accommodated and will be quoted for...
One 6ft table and two chairs can be provided to Single and Outdoor Gazebos and are included in the stall fee. Similarly two 6ft tables and two chairs can be provided to 'L-shape' stalls and are also included in the stall fee. Please note extra tables beyond this are charged at £16 each.
Electric is available at all stall positions. PAT test certificates are required for electrical equipment. Finally prices quoted do not include VAT as FoA is not currently registered for VAT but it is possible that invoices raised after 1st October may be subject to VAT.
When you choose to exhibit at an Abingdon Craft Fair you are buying into a tradition stretching back over decades and most of our customers are regulars who have the date in their diaries from one year to the next.
But we know autumn events are many and various and all of them compete for our customers' attention so we will be supporting the 2020 event with:
social media - facebook, twitter, instagram, Linked In - please join our networks.
local and regional press - PR and strong local journalistic support keeps the event in everyone's minds.
advertising in local magazines, and on bus shelter positions at the three Park and Rides and on the busy A40 either side of Oxford.
local posters and flyers to reinforce the local message.
