2020 Stall Holder bookings

Stall Holder Bookings for Gala Day 2020

Booking form and current site availability is at bottom of this page. Please read all the information on this page before making booking.

We are continuing with the same booking arrangements for Gala 2020 as used for recent years:
  • encouraging early booking via internet booking using the standard form, plus internet banking.
  • enabling for those who cannot "internet book" and / or "internet bank" to use alternative methods.
  • giving preference for particular sites on a "first paid, first choice" - but reserving the right for the Domain Committee to make final allocation based on overall arrangements for the day.
  • having restrictions on the selling of food and drinks to eat / drink at the Gala except with the specific approval in writing by the Domain Committee.
The Domain Committee established the following policy for Stall Holder bookings for Gala 2020. 
  • Stallholders are not permitted to sell or give away drinks (including soft drinks, water, tea, coffee, fruit juices, alcoholic beverages etc), or sandwiches / rolls, cakes, or hot foods, or ice creams, fairy floss etc since these affect the operation of the Domain Cafe / BBQ and concessionaires who pay a percentage of their gross takings and / or pay a substantial premium for their site.
  • It is our general policy not to allow other groups to undertake fund-raising activities from stalls during Gala Day. However, the Committee will consider individual requests and has and will allow some under certain conditions.
  • Busking is not allowed from stalls. 
  • It is important that you keep all your activities within your allocated stall site area to facilitate public access and event safety.
  • All vehicles parked away from your site should be in designated areas; otherwise it becomes difficult to park visitors (your customers) to the event.
  • Our normal policy is that we do not refund for cancelled bookings, but with plenty of advance notice we can normally come to some satisfactory arrangement.
  • Continuing policies for Gala 2020 will be:
    • not to allow for the selling of  live animals from the stalls, except with specific permission.
    • not to allow the use of generators on the sites during the time of public access, except with specific permission.
    • limiting excessive use of amplified sound / voice where it interferes with the activities of nearby stallholders.
