Stall Holders

Northey Street City Farm is calling for applications from stallholders for the 2015 Winter Solstice Festival.  In 2014 the Winter Solstice Festival drew approximately 2000 people over the afternoon and evening. In 2015 the festival will be held on June 21, from 4pm to 10pm.

We are offering space for a limited number of food vendors who can provide interesting and high quality food offering customers good value, as well as retail/service or information stalls that fit with the sustainability and permaculture principles of the farm. All stall holders will be expected to provide evidence of their public liability insurance and food licences, and to abide by terms and conditions outlined in the Northey Street City Farm Stall holder agreement and our waste management policy.

Expressions of Interest close on the 8th of May and applicants will be notified by the 15th of May

There was no mention of start or finish times in their blurb. I've taken a stab in the dark and will correct when I hear back from them.
