SHANES CASTLE MAY DAY STEAM RALLY


Sunday 6th May and Monday 7th May 2018
10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on both days
Trading opportunities at the above event

Trade Stands


Around 80 Trade Stands are set out in rows on a back to back spine basis. They are 6.0M (20’) from front to back thus enabling a vehicle to be placed lengthways at the back of the stand and tents, gazebos, market stalls or tables to be placed at the front with a working space in between.  


The trading frontage is then booked in accordance with the needs of the trader and is charged at a modest £12.00 per metre frontage which covers the two days.


There is a 6M (20’) public pass between the fronts of the rows of stands.


Craft Stalls

The Craft Marquee is 200‘ x 40‘ and contains approximately 50 stalls which are placed on the outside walls and on a back to back basis in islands up the centre. They are 8’ wide x 5’ deep to suit a standard 6’ x 2.1/2’ craft table. 


The charge per stall is £72.00 which covers the two days.  Tables can be hired at £6.00 each.


The floor is grass and limited electricity is available as the Craft Marquee is in the centre of parkland. 


Demonstration – Information – Entertainment – Educational Exhibits


These cover a huge range e.g. blacksmithing, stone masonry, wool and flax spinning, handloom weaving, butter and bread making, mobile open farms, country crafts, steam threshing, horse threshing, stone breaking, timber sawing, working model farm, stick carving, wood carving, Punch & Judy Show, basket weaving, Birds of Prey, Model Gallopers, Fairground, steam rides, and so on.
