We are seeking applications for food stands from large and small businesses both locally and further afield to help make a great atmosphere at the Burnham Donkey Derby.

After the introduction of a wide range of food stands last year we want to build on its success by limiting the number of stands available to a maximum of 10. We want to ensure that there is a wide variety of food at prices that appeal to the many families visiting the Donkey Derby. To achieve this food stands should be able to offer lower priced snacks in addition to normal priced meals. 

The cost to occupy a Food pitch is negotiable and suppliers should expect to pay between £75 and £250 per unit dependent upon its size and food offering. Operating hours are 12 noon to 5.00 pm.
