Food Trader Information
There are three food trading areas at our festival:
- Main Arena area, beside the Craft Marquee and Jester Inn Marquee
- Castle area, beside Market Lane and Kid's Kingdom; and a camp site
- Medieval trading area, near Village Square (must have authentic medieval stall/tent and food types)
We will not select and locate similar food traders in the same areas on the festival grounds.
The total number of mobile unit food concessions will be no more than eleven (11), and the acceptance of more than one unit by an individual concessionaire will be considered at the time of booking.
While limited electric is available, all food traders must supply their own generator for power. There is a fee for the electric, but generators must be supplied by everyone in case there is an electric power shortage on the grounds.
We are proud to advertise our event as being the most authentic medieval Festival of its kind in the country, and our visitors have high expectations. In order not to disappoint and to add to the fun, we request that everyone participating is dress in medieval style, and we encourage all points of sale to adopt a medieval theme. We will offer ideas and suggestions to help you achieve suitable attire!
B&B rooms are available in the Castle residence building, subject to availability, with varying prices to suit. Alternatively, free on-site camping is available. The beer and food marquee will be open at night for staff and participants.
