Saturday 3rd February 2024

11am - 4pm

at The Lakeview Suite, Rutland Hall Hotel, Nr Oakham, Rutland, LE15 8AB 

Let’s mark the end of the January sales together.

Get ready for The Rutland Big Sale's second event! This 2024 sale is going to be bigger and better than ever with stalls from £35! We're extending it outside, which means more space for larger stalls and the exciting addition of food and drink vans. How great is that?


 After the success of our first sale event and Christmas market in 2023, we're thrilled to send you an application form and more information. The deadline to submit your application is Monday 11th December 2023. We will be in touch during the following weeks of December to let you know if your application has been successful.  


The purpose of this event is to end the January sales with a bang. It's a fantastic opportunity for business to clear out excess stock and for the public to snag incredible deals.


We understand that not everyone can offer large discounts, so feel free to reduce prices to a level you're comfortable with. Whether it's 10% OFF or 70% OFF or no offer at a all - there's no pressure.

We want this event to be a success for you!


Don't miss this exciting opportunity - apply now and get ready to make a splash at The Rutland Big Sale's Second event!

Rutland Hall Hotel have kindly offered to host the event for the second year running and have collaborated with us to provide tables for indoor stall holders (if needed) where exhibitors can come together to display their wares.  


The Rutland Big Sale (TRBS) Event will take place in the Lakeview room on Saturday 3rd February 2024 and will also spill out onto the outdoor area next door (this room is located on entry to the main reception) You will be able to set up from 7am and need to have your stall ready for 10.30pm ready to kickstart TRBS. The official opening time to the public will be at 11am – 4pm (last entry). All stall holders will need to be ready for this opening time and not to start packing up before 4pm. 


There might be an option to set up the night before, but we won’t be able to confirm this until closer to the time. All stalls to be packed away by 6pm 


For any clothes retailers we will be making a pop-up changing room. Please note this might not be right next to your stall. We will try our hardest to put all clothes stands close together near the changing facilities’, but this can’t be guaranteed. The changing rooms won’t be manned and it’s up to you how you feel about customers taking items away to try on. Alternatively, you are welcome to make your own changing room next to your stall within your space.

To make sure your setup is level and secure, we recommend bringing tables with adjustable legs. We can't guarantee that our outdoor surfaces will be perfectly flat.

If you have a low baring or a particularly large food truck, we suggest visiting us before booking your space to avoid any potential issues.

If you're planning to bring your own generator, make sure it's "low noise" and safe to use. It should be self-standing and not pose any hazards. We want to keep everyone safe and sound! Please let us know if you are bringing generator, it’s important for us to be aware of all electrical equipment on-site.


 Remember, it's crucial that all electrical generators, wiring, and appliances have a current certificate in accordance with IEE Regulations. Don't forget to provide this documentation along with your public liability information when booking.
