Christmas Makers Market application

Christmas Makers Market runs Friday 3 December, 4-8pm
Set up from 3.30pm, close and clear by 9pm
Cost is £10 (includes one small table)
Deadline for applications, 9am, Monday 15 November

We are delighted to offer this festive opportunity to local makers, keeping Christmas local. For independent makers these last couple of years have been extremely challenging. Many have fallen through the net of financial support and usual sales opportunities have reduced considerably. It’s vital that we support our creative community in a safe, enjoyable way. We will encourage our supporters to come and buy your festive gifts direct from wonderful artists.

The ground floor of Frome’s arts centre will open late for this event, including our shop, courtyard, studio shops and River House café (with their new festive menu, selection of hot, alcoholic and soft drinks). The courtyard will be decorated with fairy lights, the evening will feature live music outdoors to ensure a real festive atmosphere, and we will ensure the event is features in local media, our website and popular social media channels.

Confirmation and final details will be sent Tuesday 16 and payment is required by 5pm Friday 19 November to secure your place. We will provide payment instructions once we have confirmed your space.

COVID information

We will carefully monitor Health & Safety before and during the market, and a full risk assessment will be conducted. All inside spaces will be well-ventilated, all doors open to ensure easy access. We recommend masks are worn, surfaces are regularly sanitised and hands are washed thoroughly. Please provide your own hand sanitiser and work together to help us make the event a success for everyone.
