  • New Blackpool outdoor town centre craft/vintage market

    Dotty Delightful brings to Blackpool an outdoor fair with a difference, there will be good food, local designers and crafters, artists, vintage collectors who are all local,
    all with roots in Blackpool and all with the vision where our town really can show holiday makers and locals alike that it is more than the hen do's and nightclubs.
    Blackpool has a lot going for it but it seems rather underground, there are pockets of brilliance that only a certain few thousand know about, I want to bring it to the public
    I want the 140,000 other Blackpool residents and 7 million visitors to see the local talent that we have to offer.
    The idea is to work with the other businesses in the area to boost sales and footfall and have something different in town centre.
    The market will be each first Sunday of the month, there will be reserved pitches only.

    Stall holders will need to bring their own gazebos, something to weigh them down as it is hardstanding and gets windy. Gazebos need sides on them. Tables, chairs, generators ( if needed) etc need to be brought with you.
    There will be bins provided around the market please put all you rubbish in the bin/skip.

    Set up from 8.30, please be off the square with your vehicle before 9.30 as the gates close on either end of church street. The nearest and cheapest car park is the one on the corner of Cookson/Church street. Please google it to find the location. It is roughly £3 for 8 hours.
    The market is open for trading at 11 - 5pm. You won't be able to get your vehicle onto the square until the barriers go up between 5.30-6pm.

    You will also need insurance, to fill in a risk assesment and have a food safety cert and fire extinguisher if you are selling food.

    Pitches are £20 per event for a standard 3 x 3 gazebo. Contact me for regular pitch incentives. There are incentives for stallholders booking and paying for the full 5 fairs in advance. If you book all 5 you get Nov free.

    Any questions please feel free to ask, thanks Dotty Delightful ( you can find me on fb as this name too )
