This event is unique in its style of trading and set up. The High Street in Guildford is a cobbled hill, which is pedestrianised in the day and a road at night. We therefore set-up each morning and breakdown each evening, Guildford is a very wealthy town with all the top retail shops which attracts excellent visitors in large numbers everyday.

We use one side of the street and put up 3m x 3m pop-up tents (either your own or hired from us) we then trade between 10:00am and 5:00pm each day (9:00am and 5:30pm on Saturdays). The event lasts for six days and you can book in multiples of three, prices depend on the days.

We will send you a separate booking form for this event – please tick the box on the booking form if interested.

We do not like to clash with the shops so certain product ranges are limited i.e. ladies clothes.
