Organiser FAQs

  • Where do I send my supporting documentation?

Via email to pumpkin-festival@jst.org.uk

Or via post to

Jubilee Sailing Trust

Attn: Pumpkin Festival

12 Hazel Road, Southampton SO19 7GA

  • I don't have a scanner. How can I prepare the required documents to be sent via email ?

Please print the documents, sign them, and then take a photograph of your documents with your smartphone or camera. You can then upload these pictures as attachments to your email.

  • When do I get to know details including, time of arrival, pitch number, site plan etc?

You will be sent detailed joining instructions approximately 2 weeks before the date of the Festival.

  • Will there be other stalls selling similar items?

Possibly (but not too many), we endeavour to site similar stalls as far away as the site plan allows and with a footfall of over 6,000 visitors there should be enough trade for everyone.

  • Can I leave packaging/trade waste at the end of the day for the Festival organisers to dispose of?

We have limited space for waste and very limited time in which our volunteers can collect and dispose of it at the end of the Festival so ALL trade waste and packaging you generate MUST be removed by yourselves.
