Christmas Market – Trader Information

A Brief History

Winter Glow is in it’s fourth full year after running a tester event in 2020 and a full event with 4 attractions in 2021 2022 & 2023.

2024 sees a further expansion in activities with additional market stall availability, the fairground will partially move indoors, a new UV Glow Crazy Golf attraction, as well as its existing Personalised Santa Experience, Ice Rink and Illuminated Light Trail, making for an ultimate festive experience for families this Christmas.

We welcomed 90,000 people through our doors in 2023 and have set a target of 105,000 in 2024 – we appreciate that this over 34 live dates is not a traditional town centre destination, and our stall prices reflect that.

There is already an established Cafe, Food Quarter and Winter Bar.

What We Provide

The Christmas Market will be located indoors next to our Food Quarter. The Market is next to an ice rink, so you will need to wrap up warm!

We provide a covered market stall with lighting. 2 x 13 amp sockets are available for £20 per week.

The stall is 3m wide x 2.4m deep and comes with two 6ft x 2.6ft trestle tables that you can use to display your products on. You’re welcome to bring your own tables to use instead if you’d prefer.

There will also be a small welfare area available for traders with a water supply, kettle, and microwave. We recommend bringing flasks, tea / coffee and hot water bottles to help keep you warm!
