Stamford Food & Drink Festival 2019
Stamford Food & Drink Festival 2019 – Market Square Group
Market square group host many food and drink festivals, markets and music festivals throughout the UK. They have an easy online portal and some good events if you have weekends to fill. The Event owner runs the bars and is always available to have a chat with when on site.
The Festival was set out on Stamford meadows, on the whole it was a small show with 7-8 food traders, four bars and around 9 or 10 retail stands. They also have a stage set for music all weekend. This year was a bit disappointing as Saturday was a complete wash out with winds over 30mph so we missed a whole day trading.
The event team had put on Live local music all weekend but unfortunately this was rained off on the Saturday. They had a fair-sized kid’s area with a massive bouncy castle a few rides and face painting.
This really doesn’t matter considering the size of this event.
Footfall was pretty poor on the Sunday with around 1500 people throughout the day, the weather was not the best though.
Service for the trader.
I’ve done a couple of events with these guys and they are normally good weekend fillers. Always get good service and the event team a nice people, easy application process and good communication. You’ll get free parking here. They would do better with a proper recycling system in place.
This event was quite cheap and I think in many ways you do get what you pay for
Build and Break
Build up was late on Friday at 6pm you can get in an hour or so earlier if you wanted to, also you can build up until 9:30am on Saturday. Break down was very easy as there where not many traders.
Pitch fee: 7/10
Verdict: 2 stars
