How do I apply?
If you would like to be considered for a stall at a future market please fill in an online application form by the stated deadline on the ‘apply’ page.
Take a look at our ‘Vendors’ page to get an idea of the kind of arts / crafts featured at Clutter City.
All applications will be collated after the deadline and stalls will be selected on how well they fit into the overall feel and atmosphere of Clutter City and to ensure a wide range of goods are on offer. You will receive an e-mail letting you know either way within the week of the deadline.
If your application is successful you will be sent an info pack with stall layouts and payment details and deadline. You will also be added to our vendors list to receive updates on future market dates.
How much does it cost? How do I send payment?
There are 31 stalls in total and these are located in two areas, 8 in the foyer at the entrance of the building and 23 in the main auditorium including the stage which is raised. In Summer we have extra activities and stalls on the front lawn. All pitches cost £15 for the day (10am set up – 5pm get out). The fair is open to the public from 11am – 4pm. We also request a small handmade donation towards our Clutter City lucky dip with all proceeds going to charity.
Once your application has been confirmed payment can be made through Norwich Arts Centre on 01603 660352 or in person. We can accept delta, solo, mastercard, visa (30p surcharge), cheque or cash. Payment must be made in advance of the market date. If we have not received it by the payment deadline then we may have to offer your space to another vendor.
What if I need to cancel my booking?
If you need to cancel your booking please let us know as soon as possible so we can look to fill your space. If payment has been made and the cancellation is within two weeks of the market date we will only be able to offer a refund if we can find a replacement stall holder.
Can I have 2 stall spaces for myself?
As space is quite limited and we are usually oversubscribed we can’t always offer this but please do get in touch if you would like two spaces and we’ll see if we can accommodate you.
My stall and layout?
**Please be aware that you will need to supply your own table (approx size 120cm X 75cm) but we can supply chairs.**
Space can also be quite tight and table sizes differ so there may be slight adjustments on the day.
We regret that vendors can’t pick a specific pitch within their chosen location and stalls will be allocated at random. If you would like to be near a friend please let us know and we will always try and place you together. It’s nice to have a friendly neighbour (especially when you want to pop to the bar)! If you become a regular vendor, we do rotate stall layouts to ensure everyone has a chance to try a new position.
The NAC auditorium is a music venue by night so has quite low lighting levels during the day. We light the hall with floodlights, coloured stage lights and patterned gels so please think about your own lighting and bring a lamp if necessary. If you think you may need an electrical point please let us know so we can try and allocate you a suitable space. You may need to provide your own extension lead. Please note that if you want to use fairy lights they must be powered through a transformer box.
Feel free to drop by the arts centre and check out the space and lighting before you apply.
How is Clutter City promoted?
This is a DIY-style show which means that we need you to help get the word out! Our marketing budget is very small so we rely on vendors and friends to help spread the word. Vendors will receive Clutter City e-flyers with their info pack and we would be grateful if you can feature them on your blog/website/social networking profiles wherever possible. If you are able to print paper flyers then please do and hand them out to all your friends and family. The more we can all advertise, the busier it will be!
We advertise the market on the Clutter City website, Norwich Arts Centre website, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and various on-line art / craft forums as well as posters and leaflets around the city. Confirmed vendors with website links will also be added to the Clutter City ‘Vendors’ page.
We have a mailing list if you would like to keep up to date with all our future markets and events. Join the mailing list here
