Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of Bath Christmas Market. As such, single-use plastics are not permitted and all stallholders must use environmentally-friendly biodegradable alternatives to common single-use plastic products such as product packaging, bags, bottles, straws, containers, cups and cutlery.

Please be aware that BATHNES’ Clean Air Zone will be introduced in 2020/2021. Click here for further information.

Please give a detailed description of the processes you will put in place to adopt sustainable travel during the event, and how your products are environmentally friendly.

Local Residents' Offer

As part of this application, all stallholders must provide a discount or incentive for residents (guaranteed on presentation of Discovery Card).

This does not need to be financial or a discount but must be an incentive for residents when visiting your chalet. This offer will be available to residents on Monday to Friday from 10am until close.

This year, as Bath Christmas Market is celebrating its 20th anniversary, we would like all Local Residents’ Offers to be 20th anniversary-themed, for example, a 20% discount on purchases over a certain spend, or a free gift with a spend of over £20 etc.

New for 2020 – Two-Day Chalet Lets

Bath Christmas Market is dedicated to supporting small, local start-up businesses, giving them a platform to showcase their unique handmade products. If your business meets this criteria and you wish to participate in the event but for a shorter period and at less cost, you can apply for a two-day let. Please note, we have very strict criteria for businesses who wish to apply for this opportunity. Applications will only be accepted from BATHNES-based businesses. Proof of address must be provided and a two-day let will only be offered to businesses or individuals who handmake their own products, which will be quality checked by our selection panel.

If you would like to apply for a two-day let, please indicate below which date you would like to attend.

If, due to popular demand, we are unable to offer you your preferred date, we will do our best to offer you an alternative.

Two-day let applicants will not be able to request a specific zone or pitch. This will be allocated to successful applicants before the event commences.

Please ensure you have completed all of the following information and emailed us all the relevant documentation to enable us to assess your application.

By submitting this application form, I confirm that I have read and agree to the Bath Christmas Market 2020 Stallholder Terms and Conditions.

On completing this application form, I agree that in order for Visit Bath to fulfil their contractual obligations between Bath Christmas Market and its stallholders, it is necessary to hold and process all necessary stallholder information for the specific purpose of participating in Bath Christmas Market.

In the months ahead Visit Bath will be monitoring Government guidelines very closely so please be assured that the health and safety of visitors, local residents and all participants in the event is, and always will be, our utmost priority. We hope that due to the current COVID-19 situation, the event will be able to operate in some format whether this be on street with strict hygiene and social distancing measures in place and/or a virtual market with online sales. We hope that Bath Christmas Market can continue to support the city and as many local and regional businesses as possible.

If your application is unsuccessful, we are unable to offer individual feedback, so please accept that the decision of the selection panel is final. We do understand that it is disappointing not to be selected in the first instance, but please be assured that if you are allocated to the waiting list, we will contact you should a suitable opportunity arise.
