We are holding markets throughout the year and ELHT&Me are looking for stallholders! The purpose of the market is to raise funds to improve patient experience across East Lancashire. The markets are a tried and tested fundraiser with a huge footfall; they give patients, family and staff a welcome break.

If you have new goods to sell at the front entrance of Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital, apply to be a stallholder by contacting the Fundraising Team. Places fill up fast and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible! We will endeavour to ensure we have no goods that conflict on each date. This may result in us being unable to grant the dates chosen.

Fancy holding a stall?

The fee for each stall is £50 per day, with additional £15 charge for racks or rails alongside the stall. Payment is required when booking your stall – we are unable to reserve spaces before payment has been made. Space is limited and if you require more than the allocated space for your stall, additional charges will apply.

Eligibility and terms

  • Stallholders may set up from 8:30am (but not until a member of stall is present)
  • No fundraising activity (including raffles, tombola’s or prize draws) can take place on your stall.
  • No consumables (food and drink of any kind) can be sold due to infection control reasons.
  • Your stall can be manned by a maximum of two people at any one time.
  • No food or drink can consumed behind stalls – stallholders will be required to leave the Market area to have food or drink. If you are a sole trader, discretional eating is permitted.
  • Additional stock storage is only permitted under the covered tables or tidily placed to the rear of the stalls.
  • Stallholders will require their own public liability insurance (proof of which will be needed on application).
  • Stock, personal belongings and takings are the responsibility of the stall holder at all times. The Charity is unable to reimburse stallholders for any loss.
  • Day parking charges will apply to stallholders as they do to other hospital visitors.
