Rustic Sunday 2020 will be taking place on Sunday 26th July this year from 10am to 5pm. The day is a celebration of rural life and vanishing skills from a bygone era. It also encompasses the simple, rustic trades, crafts and hobbies of today. It gives craftspeople and artisans alike, the opportunity to showcase their skills in a rich, rural setting, whether they be traditional trades or more modern crafts.
The day is also an opportunity for visitors to try their hand at some of the skills on display or to find out more through demonstrations and displays.
As this is an event that was introduced by the Rustic volunteers, there is no charge for pitches but envelopes will be passed round during the event should anyone wish to make a donation towards the upkeep of the museum.
If you have a craft, trade or skill that you would like to demonstrate at the museum and feel that it would fit in with the theme of the event, please complete the following form and return it before Friday 19th June. All submissions will be subject to a selection process for suitability for the day and contacted after the form closing date.
-Please bring your own chairs and tables for outside pitches. If you choose an outside pitch, you will need to bring a gazebo. We are only able to offer tables for inside pitches only. Inside pitches are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
-All stallholders MUST have public liability insurance to book a place at this event. If you do not have the appropriate insurance you will not be able to participate in this event.
-If you are intending to bring any electrical items, they MUST have been PAT tested. If you require any items to be PAT tested we do offer this service at the museum prior to the event for a small fee. PAT Testing cannot be undertaken on the day of the event. Items are required to have a green and white PAT testing sticker and this will be checked on arrival at the Centre on event day. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book a test.
