Trader applications for Twilight Market
Trader applications are now open for the November Twilight Market, taking place on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 November.
The closing date for applications is 3pm on Friday, 5 October
Twilight Market at St George’s is organised by Belfast City Council. The event-ful consultancy has been engaged by Belfast City Council to assist with the logistics for this event including the management of trader applications. The event-ful consultancy is working as a Data Processor for Belfast City Council and any personal data processed will only be for Belfast City Council purposes. All personal data will be processed securely and in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998. The Twilight Market is predominantly a food market, with a small number of craft stalls to enhance the visitor experience.
Traders are required to commit to attend both days of the market, trading from 4pm on Tuesday 6 November and Wednesday 7 November 2018. Traders should ensure they have adequate stock to cover both full sessions – under no circumstances will traders be permitted to pack up before the close of the market on either day. By submitting an application form, you are agreeing to adhere to these terms and conditions.
Completion of the application form does not guarantee a stall at the Twilight Market. A selection panel will meet to approve all application forms and you will be notified of the outcome no later than one week from applications closing. We wish to showcase the best of Northern Ireland produce. To ensure a good representation across the NI Food sector and a good range of local arts and crafts products, a selection process will be applied, and we will endeavour to avoid the duplication of goods. The selection panel will consider each application and will set criteria in place to help with their decision making and shortlisting. To help with the selection process, please complete the application form to follow. All traders will only be permitted to sell items that are stated on their application form, and what has been agreed with the event organisers. You are not permitted to add items to your stall for selling during the event.
To cover the costs of the Twilight Market, the cost to trade at this two day event is set at:
- £230 for hot food stalls, and
- £180 for cold food / miscellaneous / arts and crafts.
Existing permanent traders at St George’s Market are eligible to a £20 discount on either of the above prices. This cost includes the provision of electricity and your stall / table.
Please note these costs will be confirmed upon notification to successful applicants. We are currently exploring ways to generate additional income to cover the event overheads, which will enable us to reduce the costs to traders. Applications close at 3pm on Friday 5 October.
Fridges, sinks and hand wash facilities are available for hire separately and at an additional cost. Please ensure you have the necessary facilities in place to allow you to trade safely (including provision of handwash units, fridges etc as required). All costs are inclusive of VAT.
