Our events marketplace is always incredibly popular and we really want to support local entrepreneurs, small businesses and local social enterprise schemes and local community groups which meet the criteria of:

  • Local crafters/traders/businesses of local home made products, local grown produce, items to be hand-made, products created/produced by the seller in their entirety.
  • No items to be pre-bought or pre-manufactured products to be simply sold on. However, applying customisation or personalisation is acceptable.
  • You supply services and support offered by the group or charity to be beneficial to the residents of Burwell and surrounding villages.
  • Within a 20 mile radius of Burwell.

  • We ask all stalls must remain open/in-place until 5.30pm at which time Marketplace vehicles will need to be escorted by event stewards from the site between 5.30 – 6.30pm. All stall plots must be emptied by this time for safety and security reasons. Thank you.
