Used to have a stall there but was put off by the regular traders who were always commenting on the cost of items on my stall and what kind of things I was selling. Not a nice place to trade, wouldn't ever trade or visit there again. Also the organizer gives in to the regular traders and they sort of rule him as they have regular stalls. It's all about keeping them happy.

We traded last week for the first time, its a fine little event, we have traded in many larger arenas for far less footfall.
All tables were sold out, signage to the event was very good, even at this early stage in the season , no one was complaining, and all stall holders seemed to get on. A various range of goods, non duplicated gave all traders a fair chance of business.

As for the event holders looking after their established customers whats wrong with that?

We would certainly attend again, but our regular unit on Fantasy Island keeps us busy 7 days a week March until November.
The fees very cheap.We saw no faults at all....if any one was interested in attending as a trader, the Summer events are held daily..and seem very good value.

You obviously had a good experience there. Yes the footfall is good and the event is well advertised but some of the regular stall holders are not very nice. I would not make inappropriate comments about goods on someone else's stall. I have traded in lots of places and this was the worst.
