stallholders ensure that their Tents/Gazebos are weighted down. Domestic
Gazebos are not to be used. As with all open air events, traders take up pitches
at their own risk and no refunds will be given due to adverse weather conditions.
The Nature of the seafront location means that everybody gets access to high
footfall and a flat pitch with easy access.
