Chislehurst Summer Fair - Pitch Booking

Sat, Jun 8th 2024 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Booking conditions and application form for pitch(es) at the Summer Fair.

You will find the booking form (which you can complete and submit online) further down this page. Due to the significant additional time and cost involved, APPLICATIONS CAN ONLY BE ACCEPTED VIA THE ONLINE FORM.

it would be appreciated if Stallholders could bear in mind the necessity of reducing the use of plastic when deciding on their stall products, especially the use of plastic glasses.

If you are a food vendor then, before completing the form below, please read first the notes on provision of food for public consumption. If you are also a commercial entity, please ensure that you have provided on this form (or can provide no later than 4 weeks before the Fair) all the information we need to validate whether you are allowed to sell food for public consumption. If this information is not received, then you may not be able to sell food on the day. We regret that pitch fees are not refundable under these circumstances.

Please note that your reservation is not confirmed until your payment has been received. If not paid prior to the event, your space cannot be guaranteed (and will be charged at full rate, if available, on the day).

Allocation of specified pitch(es) is provisional and on a best-endeavours basis; and may not be achievable if it proves necessary to alter the layout of the fair for any reason. If it is important to you NOT to be adjacent to another stall selling similar goods, please advise us of this when booking and will will endeavour to prevent it; but we do not always know exactly what every stall will be selling on the day, so we can never guarantee to achieve this in respect of all the items you are selling. Please confirm your pitch allocation on arrival with the Rotary stewards.


The regular pitch fees do NOT guarantee exclusivity. This is only available to concessions. Certain concessions (fairground entertainments, ice cream van, etc.) which do not occupy standard pitches, are by negotiation only; please contact us if you wish to bid for one of these. If you are taking one or more standard pitches, but wish to have exclusivity, then a 100% premium applies to the fee rate. This can only be offered if we have not already accepted a pitch booking for the goods or services you are providing.

Pitch fees

A single, standard, pitch is 12ft wide x 15ft deep (unchanged from previous years). There is also a limited number of "wide" pitches (15ft wide x 12ft deep). Only grass pitches are provided; stallholders must provide all stalls, furniture, tenting etc. required. Neither electricity nor water can be supplied; pitch-holders must make their own arrangements if they require either. All pitches are hired on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pitch fees are remaining unchanged this year.  Please note there is a discount on multiple pitches, so that stallholders booking more than 1 pitch incur a reduction on their second pitch.

  Not-for-profit Commercial
For payments in advance (paid at least 4 weeks prior to the fair) £45 £55
For payments after 15 May 2023  £60 £70
 Additional pitches paid in advance £40 £50
 Additional pitches paid after 15 May 2023 £60 £70

For Concessions (standard pitches with exclusivity), all rates are double those shown above.

The current pitches available are shown below:

Once the fair pitches are fully booked (which normally happens sometime during May) any outstanding unpaid bookings are automatically cancelled (after giving notice to the original pitch-booker) and released for new bookings on a payment-only basis.

Un-booked pitch-holders may be admitted on the day, subject to availability, for cash payments only, at the applicable full rate (but please note that, in recent years, the fair has always been fully booked).

Please complete and submit the booking form below to reserve your pitch, then make your payment for the appropriate amount to THE ROTARY CLUB OF CHISLEHURST by BACS transfer (see booking form for details) or to the address on the form as soon as possiblePlease only use the BACS details given to you on your acceptance email/letter.

If you are in this situation you must have your own insurance and have carried out an adequate Risk Analysis. We can be legally obliged to inspect these documents, so kindly ensure that you bring them with you on the day.

Our members enjoy an active social programme and the opportunity to help others. The Rotary Club encourages service to the community both locally and internationally.

Our 2024 Summer Fair will be on Saturday 8th June


Providing food for public consumption is subject to food safety law. The information on this page will help you to decide if you can provide food at one of our events and, if so, what additional steps you may need to take to protect the public.


The Programme for the Summer Fair contains the plan of the Fair, list of exhibitors, the entertainments schedule, and advertisements by our very generous sponsors.


Advertisements are welcome in our Summer Fair Programme - usually 12 or 16 pages, A5, 4-colour throughout - which gives brief details of all the stallholders and the day's entertainments programme.

Rotary Clubs operate within areas of service - to their local, national and international communities and to the Club itself. The service areas within our Club are: Community; International; Foundation (Rotary"™s charity organisation); Club; and Social.


No car parking is permitted on The Common for members of the public attending the fair. Stallholders that need a vehicle to remain on the Common must apply for a parking permit.


Community Service is the Club's link with the local community. Emphasis is placed on links within the immediate Chislehurst area, where substantial efforts and contributions are made to help local charities and to undertake projects to help those in need.


We are a small, but enthusiastic, Club with a strong commitment to helping those less fortunate overseas; ensuring that any aid is provided where it is needed and managed locally so that all funds are used wisely and effectively.


The Rotary Foundation is a world wide charity whose aim is to support the efforts of Rotary International in its mission to achieve worldwide understanding and peace through local and national humanitarian, educational and cultural support programmes.


The Club Service Committee works with our elected Club Council to ensure, as far as possible, the smooth running of the Club


The Social team (a sub-committee of Club Service) deals with all the social aspects of the Club. If we can raise some money for charity, then that is an extra bonus!!
