Booking a Pitch

Fill out the form on apply for a stall to book. Pitch bookings are decided by a few factors including:

• If we already have stalls selling what you make

• If you are a local business and/or a start-up

The pitch is not considered booked until we have received your pitch fee and the paperwork for your public liability insurance.

Established traders are able to block-book pitches for a number of months at a discounted monthly rate. Please contact us via email for more information or if you have any other questions.

HOW DO I BECOME A TRADER?

Insurance

To book their pitch all traders must submit a copy of valid public liability insurance documents registered in their name.

 

If you don't have this already, the Combined Market Traders Insurance Association provides a suitable policy for around £57/yr and other providers are available.

As organisers, The Clocktower Market holds our

own public liability insurance policy.

Numbers are limited

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and our council permits, the size of the Clocktower Market is currently limited. This means that not all applicants will be successful.

 

We will let you know as soon as possible whether a pitch is available or if you have been added to our waiting list.

Travel & Parking

The entrance to the Clocktower Market is via Selhurst Road A213 which crosses Portland Road by the Albion pub and the Jolly Sailor pub. Once you arrive please make contact with the organisers who will direct you to your pitch.

Facilities

Power is only available on site if requested prior to market day. Maximum of four traders will be able to access electricity. All electrical equipment used must be PAT tested. All generators must be silent and any gas canisters can only be used if you provide us with a legal certificate confirming you are trained to do so.

The market does not have access to public toilets. Toilets are available in local cafes.

There are no bins available for trader's waste materials. Traders must dispose of waste materials responsibly.
