Sellers must book in advance* at a cost of £10 per table top pitch or £15 for 2 tables, which must be paid ahead of arrival. Sellers can use their own table or hire tables for £5 each. All fees are non-refundable.

The sale is open to the public from 10am, and adult visitors are charged £1 entry while all children go free!
