YOU CAN STILL GET INVOLVED IN OUR STORY SHOWCASE - HEAD HERE FOR INFO.

APPLICATIONS FOR THE AUGUST EVENT WILL OPEN W/C 6TH OF JULY.

 

Hello! So you're interested in being a part of the curated line up for the Virtually There Fair. This is set to be the main focus of this event.

 

Our first Virtually There Fair is taking place on Saturday July 4th from 11am - 3pm on our Instagram @duchyfairs #virtuallytherefair. With Craft & Design, Food & Drink, Vintage & Salvage and Home & Garden it's not to be missed. While we can't all get together right now we're committed to creating an amazing virtual event and our curated line up of traders will be the key focus of this event.

 

Who are we looking for? 

  • The curated line up will feature a hand picked selection of indie makers, designers, producers and creators.

  • We're looking for about 40 traders to complete our curated line up.

  • The fair line up will feature Craft & Design, Food & Drink, Vintage & Salvage and Home & Garden traders.

  • To take part in this event you will need to apply using the application form below. Applications close on Sunday the 21st of June and successful applicants will be notified the following week.

What will you need to do?

We're finalising the format but this is where we're at - successful applicants will be sent full details and guidance on what they need to do.

  • To take part you will need to set up your usual fair or market stand or a specially created product display in your own home ahead of the fair date.

  • The requested content will need to be supplied by you, the trader, by the Wednesday before the event, so for this event by Wednesday the 1st of July.

  • A few wide shot photos of your stand / product display. This should include a couple of angles and photos of you in and out of shot.

  • A short hello video (max 20 seconds) of you. This should clearly include your name, your business name, what you do.

  • A longer stand tour video (max 2-3 minutes) where you take virtual visitors around your stand, focus on some of the products including a bit more about them and the price.

  • A series of close up shots of your product range / individual products from your stand / display - these photos should make it visually clear what the product is and the price or price range.

  • A photo of you, the trader, that reflects your brand.

  • A business logo.

  • A short written blurb (max 100 words) about your business / products.

  • It's also important to note that to take part you need to be on instagram!

How will visitors find you?

Each trader will say 'hello' in our Fair Intro that will be 'as live' at fair open and will explain how the event will work. Each trader will be featured in the longer format visitor fair tour that will be hosted on IGtv via the grid and our IGtv channel. This video will be posted after the fair intro for visitors to 'browse'. This video will be edited by us from the longer format stand videos you supply. Each trader will also have a dedicated album featured on our instagram grid on the fair day. This will feature up to 10 visuals from what you supply and will be edited and formatted by us. The album will include a wide stand shot, a series of closer product selling shots and your trader photo as an album sign off. Your album will be accompanied by a written intro from us and your 100 word intro.

 

What will it cost you?

There is a completely voluntary trader contribution to be a part of the curated line up. This is entirely discretionary. We know that times are tough right now and if you are not able to afford this donation then please don't make it, your ability to pay or not is most definitely not a part of the application process. However if you can afford to make a voluntary contribution we would really appreciate it as it will help manage our costs. Our suggested contribution is £5+. We pay for our website and domain, marketing mail manager, forms hosting and database as ongoing costs whether we are hosting 'real' events or not and your contribution will help us to continue!
