The Festival includes a diverse mixture of political and campaigning stalls, information and advice stalls, a range of stalls selling gifts, clothing, books and other items and plenty of food and drink stalls for all tastes.

The Festival offers groups with a platform to promote their campaigns.

Campaign stall applications

The Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival welcomes applications for stalls from a wide variety of campaign groups. The diversity of stalls adds to the enjoyment of the event and helps promote progressive causes. The Festival has limited space and whilst all applications received by the deadline will be considered, we are unable to guarantee a stall.

Priority is given to campaigns that are trade union backed and fall within the TUC’s campaigning objectives. The South West TUC reserves the right to refuse applications.

The decision of the South West TUC shall be final.

Stall fees for inside the marquee are £70 (includes one vehicle pass) and outside the marquee are £110 (includes one vehicle pass).  You will need to purchase entrance wristbands, tent or campervan spaces and additional parking space in the Tolpuddle Festival shop.  Once your application has been approved a confirmation letter will be sent in regards to timings and how to pay. Stalls outside the marquee can set up on Friday-Sunday and inside the marquee Saturday-Sunday.
