Terms & Conditions for trading at Knockengorroch

Traders are not permitted to bring their own generators, though we are happy if you bring your own battery power i.e. no generator. We can provide power at £110 from Friday to Sunday night/Monday morning (we will do our best to provide power from Thursday), payable in advance along with stall fees – please indicate above. If power is required, a returnable deposit of £10 must also be paid for the electrical connections needed to power you up. On return of the equipment to the festival office (our electrician will indicate what has to be returned) you will be reimbursed with the deposit.

So the total electricity charge is £120 (including returnable deposit of £10)

The £10 deposit will not be returned if you do not hand in the equipment before you leave the site Monday. Late applications for returning the deposit will not be accepted.

All traders must be on site by 8pm Wednesday 9th September and may not leave the site til Monday morning. If you cannot comply with this, you must let us know. We appreciate some have travelled a long way, but it is unfair for staff to be expected to site traders who arrive so late.

Please Note: Health & Safety will not allow any fires of any description at all. Please comply both with this rule, and the No Smoking law in your stall.

You must leave your site as you found it. Please use the recycling bins and dispose of all litter properly. Please take home as much of your litter as possible.

We have a limited number of stalls and give priority to local and previous traders. We cannot guarantee a space but we cannot consider any applications without this completed form. Please keep a copy of our terms and conditions for your records.

If successful we will notify you of the cost of trading (a 4 day ticket per person + stall fee + electricity charge if electricity required).


One vehicle free of charge is permitted. Any further vehicles must be paid for at visitor rates. All payments must be received preferably by return when you are notified if successful, and at the latest by 7th August 2020. We are always heavily oversubscribed and end up with a waiting list.

Application Deadline

Deadline for receipt of traders’ applications is 17th July 2020.

By applying for a trade space, you signify your agreement to all of the above terms & conditions.


Our preferred method of payment is by bank transfer. Details will be sent with your acceptance email.
