CAN I BRING MY STALL?
All our regular traders should have already received a booking form but if you are new to our events then either click on the underlined booking form to download a form or contact Mark Byard on 07956 579684 or mark.byard@live.co.uk for more information about how to book your stall in.
Please note that we are usually over-subscribed with traders so early booking is essential.

CAN I BRING MY OWN BUS?
Yes please! If you want to be a static exhibit, or to run in service, entry forms will be available later

CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE MY DISABILITY?
The Museum building is on one level, with level entry from the street. We are sorry, but due to their age and design our buses cannot carry wheelchairs or buggies unless they can be folded flat, and all our buses have step-entrances. If you have any specific needs, please contact us in advance (details below) and we will do everything we can to assist you.

ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS OR EVENT IN OUR PROGRAMME!
With up to a thousand booklets being distributed, your business or event could benefit from the publicity. The booklet will be in full colour, A5 size. A full page advert is just £50, and a half-page advert for £30. Contact us (details below) for more information about advertising.
