Applying for a Community or Trade stall
Queen’s Park Day will take place on Sunday 17th September between 12pm and 5.30pm. Applications for Community and Trade stalls will be open from 1st April to 17th May, when application forms will be available to download from this website. QPARA does not take any stalls applications outside of those dates. Please do not contact us to enquire about stall availability before then, as the Queen’s Park Day team are not available to answer your queries.
Am I eligible for Community Stall?
Community Stalls are for charities with registered charity numbers and not-for-profit organisations. Examples of not-for profit organisations would be churches, libraries, scouts, brownies, cubs and youth groups.
If I apply for a stall immediately will I be sure to get one?
Not necessarily. Stalls are not allocated on a first come first served basis. After the closing date we consider all the applications and then contact you to tell you whether or not you have been successful.
How do you allocate stalls?
We favour local organisations, charities and local traders. Every year we try to introduce some new stalls. We also aim for a balance of different types of stalls.
What’s the size of each stall pitch?
They vary, but the frontage of your pitch will be between 3 and 4 metres.
Do you have more applications for stalls than pitches available?
Yes, we are always oversubscribed and some applicants will be disappointed. There is a short waiting list in case of cancellations.
How do I find out whether my application succeeded?
We will contact you by e-mail (or post if you have no e-mail)
