Thanks Gail - that is good news I'll let everyone know tomorrow. I'm pretty sure they will want to do an exhibition and refreshments as before but I will ask and let you know. We really enjoyed doing it the last time so I'm confident the answer will be a resounding 'YES' Bye for now

Occasionally last minute changes may have to be made; so on the fair day, your trader pack indicates your final table placement.
From time to time we may wish to take pictures of your stock and stand, with a view to publishing them on our website, or in any printed material that we use for the promotion or publicity for our events.
All the venues have different tables, and their widths vary, but they are around 2'6" wide. You may bring boards to standardize the width of their table. The prices we have quoted are for a standard table, in most cases this is 6ft, but can apply to other sizes as well, if in doubt; please check with us before booking.

No Dogs, except Guide Dogs are allowed in the Fair Rooms.
Our insurance forbids defacing all and any walls in all and any venues, so it must be mentioned that anyone putting up notices / boards and advertisements not sanctioned by the Organiser could face a fine of up to £250.
On the Booking Form stand-
No trader will be allowed to display large signs offering discounts or sale items from their stand and large scale discounts on multiple items, will not be allowed, as this impacts other traders attending the fair.
Exhibitors must not knowingly bring to the fair or offer for sale any item that has been copied from the copyright designs of (an) other craftsperson(s) or that is restricted by contractual agreements elsewhere. Where legal action has been initiated in respect of such infringements the alleged perpetrator must not bring the item or items in dispute to the fair. The Organisers and the venue and their servants and agents will not accept any liability whatsoever for any loss of business sustained by any exhibitor whatsoever that may result from this or any other exclusion(s) of items that the Organisers at their discretion may deem to be prudent. Exhibitors should satisfy themselves that they are not infringing copyright law in any way whatsoever. Exhibitors must not do anything or display any item(s) that could bring the event, the organizer, or the venue into disrepute.
No large boxes, tubs or containers holding stock for sale, are permitted next to, beside, or underneath your table. No side tables, tv tables or chairs to be used to display stock. Tables at the rear of your stand are not a problem, space permitting. Be warned.... If you erect any, you will be asked to remove them, unless they have been agreed with the organizer beforehand; do not ask at the show as the answer will be no, and a refusal often offends.
All stands will have 2 chairs supplied and access to an electrical point, but it may be appropriate to bring an extension cable. Please bring a suitable cloth to cover your table.
We try to open most venues to the stand-
Where we can, we supply free (or discounted) tea / coffee to our traders on the day of the fair. It is mostly a DIY situation, so it is helpful if you bring your own mugs.
On your arrival at an MGM Fair, you will find a “Traders Pack” on your table, this
not only indicates this is your table for the day, but it also includes:
Your invoice for the balance of monies owed for that fair
A rubbish bag
Any news/information pertinent to the show or to MGM Fairs
Small bags of sweets/chocolate, in case of need.
The monies for the balance of your table should be placed inside the envelope provided, sealed and returned to the Organiser or to Fair Reception, by 1.00pm on the day of the fair. Anyone requiring a receipt should ask when handing over the envelope.
Most of our Fairs are situated in town centers and are easily located and accessible. Car Parking is available at all the venues, but some have Pay and Display car parks. Information on these are given in the trader information and notes sent closer to the time of each fair.
The organiser reserves the right to cancel any show organized, if certain criteria have not been met. Any deposits taken for that show will be refunded.
The organiser also reserves their right to refuse a trader attendance at their shows, if compliance with these terms are not met.
