Christmas lights switch-on and Tin Hat Fair

Rules for stallholders (always and nevers)

Santa and two young children at Christmas lights switch on 2021

Please always:

  • Book your stall in plenty of time. For information on how to book a stall, visit have a stall at the switch on. You can also request a stall by ringing Paula on 01455 255856 or email
  • Be clear about what you intend to sell. Please don't give a vague description of goods and then load up your stall with something different

Please never:

  • Occupy your stall dressed in any kind of Santa costume. Santa Claus will be in his grotto on Castle Street for the evening, meeting children and giving presents. The sight of other Santas on the night will only confuse young children
  • Turn up on the night intending to sell food or novelties without a prior booking as you will be turned away
  • Book your stall and then fail to turn up on the night. If you find you will be unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that someone else may have the use of the stall
