The festival starts at 4.00pm.
Entry & Exit
2018 is looking to be another big year for the LUCF. It is imperative that stallholders are at the correct area at their designated time. If any stallholder arrives at the incorrect area or ahead of their time they will be asked to turn around and wait for their correct time. If they arrive at the wrong entry point they will be directed to make their way to the correct area.
There will be Marshalls on hand to get you to where you need to be – please listen to them and follow their instructions. This is a very busy time of the day and we understand everyone wants to get to their stall and set up, so we ask that everyone please be patient and courteous.
Prior to the festival, Stallholders will be notified of arrival times and entry points. Vehicles must be removed from the premises by 3pm. Stalls must be set up and functional by 4.00pm. Stalls must commence packing up at 9.00pm sharp (not before).
The traffic management team will assign bump-out approvals upon site inspection and safety assessment. Roads are opened to traffic promptly at 11.00pm; stallholders must have exited their site by 9.30pm to allow access for the clean up crews.
Your stall site has been allocated to give you the best opportunity to sell your goods. Requests for a specific area will not be accepted, sorry. In allocating your site we have taken into consideration any existing businesses which may be near you to limit a clash in potential customers.
Stallholders will be notified of their site location, entry access point and entry directions will be given prior to the festival date.
Code of Conduct
It is expected that everyone will always act in a professional, courteous manner at all times. This includes stallholders, the public, Council officers and Light Up Camden Committee Members. Failure to do so by Stallholders will result in the stall being immediately closed down, where you will be asked to leave the Light Up Camden Festival and you will not be invited to future events.
THE FESTIVAL AREA MUST BE CLEARED,
INCLUDING REMOVAL OF RUBBISH, BY 9:30PM
