If you are interested in booking a stall at the Devizes Christmas Festival and Lantern Parade please complete our initial enquiry form.
Each year we run our own mulled wine stall, which raises much needed funds for DOCA. We also work with our sponsor Stealth Brewery, who provide a Christmas bar, so will not be seeking new vendors looking to run their own bars unless their offer is significantly different.
DOCA is in charge of both the Outside Market in the Market Place and the Makers Market in the Corn Exchange and for the first time in 2019 The Shambles which will host The Makery. All enquiries must be made directly to DOCA.
Over the next three years DOCA is looking to phase single use plastics out of all of their events. During this time, we will start looking more favourably on market traders who share this ethos and use alternatives such as wooden cutlery or vegware and are becoming more environmentally friendly about their packaging. In future years this will be part of our selection process
- Suitcase Stall (see below) – £15
- Charity (3x3m) – £15
- 3m x 3m stall – £45
- 3m x 4.5m stall – £55
- 3m x 6m Stall – £65
- 3m x 9m Stall – £85
This will take place around the Devizes Market Place during the day and into the evening. Usual trading hours are 12.30pm – 9pm.
POWER: Power is limited to one large generator which restricts the flexibility of the location we can position the stalls. Hiring it in is also a large expense for us and subsequently we have to charge you. If you have your own silence, non-smelly generator please consider bringing it along if you require power, if you emit fumes we will ask you to switch your generator off. Please state clearly your power requirements. Please bring your own gazebo which will need to be suitably weighted down.

- Charity: £15

- Double Trade: £48
Usual trading times are 2.30pm – 8.30pm. 6ft tables will be provided, please bring your own tablecloths etc. We are limited to power points available for traders, and these have been already allocated. Please make sure that any electrical equipment you bring is battery powered.
Our new initiate for 2019, incorporating a range of artist makers and craftspeople into our celebratory events. We are calling this ‘The Makery’’. We want to raise the profile of contemporary visual arts and crafts and provide opportunities to showcase these in the public domain as well as supporting the local arts economy.
Our first Makery Market will be in The Shambles with trading from 3.00 to 8.30pm. You’ll need to be selling handmade or home-made and bespoke items which are unique and of high quality. The venue will be home to music, décor, a licensed bar and a pop up food and dining area. A Makery Stall costs £25 with a 6’ table, 13 amp socket and heater provided.
Our Suitcase stalls have been a successful addition to our markets, so we are bringing them back and hoping to add more! We are happy to host you either indoors and out.
The stalls are aimed at small scale sellers with small items and are perfect for start ups.
Stalls are limited to MAXIMUM 1m x 1m, and stall holders will need to bring their own table or means of display. No cover for suitcase stalls is provided, so outdoors so traders should bring their own parasol or golf umbrella if required. Gazebos are not permitted for suitcase pitches.
