Bazaar Brighton

The Venue: 
The beautiful Brighton Unitarian Church is on New Road, right in the centre of Brighton, opposite the Royal Pavilion, Mashtun pub and Brighton Dome. The design of the church by architect Amon Henry, was inspired by the ancient Temple of Theseusin Greece (dedicated to crafts people) and was completed in 1820.

 

The building is in the heart of Brighton on the bustling New Road, opposite the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Dome in the North Lanes. There are shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres, museums and pubs surrounding. A large number of our visitors are passing trade. Bazaars that are on during the Brighton Festival in May and Bank Holiday weekends are particularly busy.

    On the Day

    Artists and designers are encouraged to bring a project to work on, that helps demonstrate their skills to potential customers during the day and help generate more interest and sales. It is also recommended that you bring business cards or other promotional goods to display on your stall, as this can generate more business for you after the event. 
    Please decorate your table with a clean and ironed tablecloth large enough to hide any stored items you may have underneath. 
    There will be food stalls and tea & coffee available in the venue on the day. 
    Insurance

    Public Liability Insurance for the venue only is included in the stall fee. Your own insurance is required to cover you, your stall and your goods. It is your responsibility to cover yourself and your goods for all eventualities. 

    There are various suitable insurance providers e.g this online newsletter for artists offers insurance as part of its annual membership for £36 https://www.a-n.co.uk/about/membership 

    Otherwise, please try these other providers for competitive rates;

    NMTF – The National Market Traders Federation offer a very good package within their membership.
