Trading Pitches

Lifestyles festival attracts thousands of visitors over the weekend.

Our primary aim is to attract quality traders who complement the activities of Extreme Sport and Culture, or retailers offering goods which are not already available in Hunstanton.

We have a selection of pitches in prime locations available to traders and those providing equipment and services for water or street sports activities will be particularly welcome. However, we will also consider other types of traders in order to cater for varied interests.

What is the cost of a Trading Pitch?

The cost of a pitch for the whole weekend is £from £100 – £500. We cannot offer a daily rate due to demand of pitches and the limited number of pitches available. Traders may book more than one pitch if required (to a maximum of 2).

What is the size and cost of a Trading Pitch?

Space only is provided. Small pitches must have a shelter/gazebo, supplied by the trader. Please note reduced rate pitches at £100 are for Charities only. Non-charities booking these spaces will be rejected.

1 x small pitch approx 2.7m x 2.7m  @ £150 (£100 for Charities)

1 x large pitch approx 4.8m x 2.4m @ £300

2 x large pitches approx 4.8m x 4.8m @ £500
