Terms and Conditions
Bookings are for the pitch only. All stallholders will need to provide their own tables, chairs, coverings, gazebos and anything else they may require.
All stallholders must provide a copy of their up to date public liability insurance and present a risk assessment prior to the festival. Any stallholder who does not provide those items in advance of the festival will not be allowed to set up their stall on the day and a refund will not be provided.
All stallholders will be provided with one free off site parking space at Warwick District Council's (WDC) headquarters. Stallholders will be able to drive on to the festival site to set up, but all vehicles must then be parked at WDC's headquarters. Alternatively, stallholders may park in any of the public car parks in Leamington Spa. Parking fees apply at public car parks.
Warwickshire Pride runs from 11:00am - 6:00pm on Saturday 20th August 2022. Stallholders are expected to stay for the duration. There will be no exception to this rule unless an emergency arises on the day. Every year there are some stallholders who try to pack up and leave early. Please understand that packing up and leaving early creates a logistical difficulty for our team of volunteers and is also a breach of health & safety guidlines that are enforced on the event. Leaving early puts the future of the festival at risk, so please consider this when booking.
No vehicles will be allowed on or off the festival site between 10:45am - 6:00pm. There will be no exceptions to this.
It is generally not possible to reserve spaces. However, if you wish to do so there is an additional £50 fee.
Requests or demands to be placed in a certain position will not be entertained. Stalls are allocated to pitches shortly before the festival and the organiser's decision is final.
Bookings are non-refundable. A refund will only be provided if the event is cancelled.
Any stallholder who does not turn up on the day will be charged a penalty of £100 and blacklisted from future Warwickshire Pride events.
Any stallholder who leaves early will be charged a penalty of £100 and blacklisted from future Warwickshire Pride events.
All types of stalls are able to be part of Warwickshire Pride, and charities/community groups are especially welcome. However, please note that we cannot accept any bookings from bars. This is because we are using a single supplier for the Warwickshire Pride bar. A tender process for this will go live in due course.
All stallholders must share our ethos and vision for a world in which all people are able to be themselves, regardless of sexuality or gender identity, and live free of discrimination simply for being who they are.
There is no electricity supply on the festival site, so stallholders will need to bring their own generators should electricity be required.
There will be a water stand pipe available for stallholders who require a water supply during the day.
The Warwickshire Pride site is fully accessible.
Expected footfall is between 2,000 - 5,000 people depending on what the weather does on the day.
