The Jane Austen Festival Australia is an annual event celebrating and exploring the life, times & works of Jane Austen. The market run as part of the festival seeks to give attendees and the general public access to items around this theme. All stalls need to have relevance to our historic theme of the Georgian/Napoleonic/Early Victorian Era and those who have not set up before need to send photographs of their setup to firstname.lastname@example.org
Inside stalls are to be set up by 10 am on Friday in the front foyer of the Albert Hall. Please bring a small power board and extension cord for electricity - you may wish to bring a lamp to highlight your goods as there is mediocre lighting. Free parking is available to all stallholders near the Albert Hall before 8.30am, with cars able to leave after 5pm. Pack-up is from 5pm-5.30pm. Neatly labelled boxes can be stored overnight Friday & Saturday night in LEFT dressing room behind the stage so the hall and foyer can be set up for the evening activities. Tables and chairs are to be lifted in the hall otherwise you may have to pay for any repairs or mark removal. All property must be completely removed from the Albert Hall by 8pm Sunday.
Fees: The fee per 760 x 1830 trestle table is $100 ($50 per table for season ticket holders & presenters) Tables and chairs have to be lifted in the hall. There are damage fees to pay if drag marks are found.
Historical Theme: As this is a living history event we ask that you set up your stall and dress yourselves as though you have stepped back in time. If you are marketing more than one day you are requested to pack up your stall and store your wares in a private room away from the public overnight, or in lidded boxes under your table.
Indoors: Stallholders can book a maximum of 1 table space.You must use a floor-length fully-enclosed white tablecloth for the front foyer or black full length tablecloth in the hall and ensure all bags and spare stock are concealed under your table. Please bring a table lamp with an extension cord as lighting is not strong in the front foyer.
Outside on patio: Outdoor daytime spaces on either paving or concrete and you need to bring up to two long folding tables, full length tablecloths and a marquee/umbrella in neutral colours. Pegs cannot be driven into the ground so we advise you to bring some sandbags to hold the marquee down if windy. In the event of rain we can provide you with a single table space inside the hall.
All stallholders: are asked to donate an item/s for our lucky raffle drawn on Sunday night.
Consignment: Jane Austen Festival Australia can also sell your goods on a 15% consignment.
