If you intend to sell food or drink in any form you will need to be registered with the Local Authority where your business is based. You need to have a letter from them confirming your registration which needs to be shown to us with your other paperwork. We will need to take a copy of this and may be asked to submit this to the Local Authority.
You also need to advise us of the following:
Trading Name of Food Business
Address of Food Business
Contact Details for the Food Business Operator (name, telephone number and email address of the person in charge of the food)
Local Authority where business is registered
Food Hygiene Rating (FHRS score)
We will send all the information to the Food Safety Team at Maldon Council who will check that the information is correct and that the business is trading legally.
Stalls will only be fully confirmed once a copy of your public liability insurance certificate and payment has been received - in the case of traders who sell edible goods, additional proof of registration with Maldon Council will be required.
All traders are required to complete an application form in order to trade at the show.
Wristbands will be available from the Booking in Tent near the Exhibitors entrance. Entry for up to three people per booking is included. Others will be charged show entry prices unless prior arrangements have been made. Additional wristbands can be purchased from the Booking in Tent on arrival. Wristbands cannot be issued on behalf of another and must be secured before proceeding onto the show ground. They will be checked by Security and Echoes of History Staff while on site. If you are not wearing a wristband you will not be served at the Bar or Catering Facilities outside of show hours and will be escorted to the Booking in Tent to purchase one.
It is against the Law to sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18. Please ensure you have proof of age available on arrival if requested by a member of either the Security or Echoes of History Staff when being issued wristbands.
The pitch sizes stated are the maximum available, unless multiple pitches are booked. All vehicles must be within the boundaries of the pitch - additional parking is available if needed away from your pitch site.
