Commercial traders at Tolpuddle

The Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival includes a range of trading stalls that sell gifts, clothing, books and other unique and quirky items. It particularly welcomes small independent traders and local producers. 

The commerical stall fee for 2020 is £200 and will include one vehicle pass, one entrance wristband and one parking space.

Commercial stalls will be required to set up during 9am and 6pm on Thursday 16th July 2020. Read here for more information on commercial stalls at Tolpuddle.
