Otley Show May 2020

6th Otley Show “Shop Local” marquee?

Register your interest now and secure your pitch for our Shop Local marquee.

Booking requirement: open to members of Otley Chamber of Trade Members. You or your business has to be a registrered member at the time of the event.


Here are some more details;

25 businesses took part last year, with some selling, others were more PR and talking to potential customers. Most pitches are about 2m x 3m, however there is room to expand or contract a bit as you wish, just make sure all your neighbours on your row have enough space too. The exact sizes of each pitch may vary slightly as we don’t know until Friday the exact location of the doors.

If your pitch needs tables or chairs, you will need to take these yourself. If you need electricity, we have been told that only silent generators are allowed, and you will need to sort this out yourself.

Every year we’ve run a simple competition to get people to linger in the marquee for longer. We will organise some hampers, and to that end we would like each of the stalls to contribute £20 to the running of the competition, and the administration costs of the event.

Your stand in the marquee is free and is a benefit of your membership of the Chamber of Trade. However, we do worry about businesses simply not turning up on the day, leaving us with an embarrassingly empty marquee. To avoid this, we will send an invoice for £100 to any businesses who does not show up.

Each business will be allocated 2 show tickets, a vehicle pass for unloading and loading as well as an allocated car parking area.

Extra tickets can be purchased from the Otley Show Office on Bridge Street or online.

One of the rules of Otley Show is that each stall holder has their own Public Liability insurance, could check your existing business insurance will cover this event. Also, Janet Raw (Otley Show organiser) has advised that they usually have inspectors checking up at about hygiene etc so anyone selling / giving food must have a hygiene certificate.

Last year we manned our stalls from 9am to about 4.30pm. We will be able to set up from Friday 15th and early morning on Saturday. Please have your vehicles parked up by 9am and your pitches ready and at there best

If you can help set up the marquee decorations on Friday, or take them down late on Saturday, please let me know.

We’ll send more precise timings when we have them. You will need to move your vehicle to the allocated parking by 9am on Saturday morning.

Any questions or comments please do let Andy or Simon know. We look forward to seeing you all there. It’s always a fun day out of the office!
