Become a Festival Stallholder

Newark Book Festival is a 4-day literature festival – celebrating local, national and international literary talent, brought together with author talks and panel events, debates and a whole host of family-fun activities and workshops.

As part of Newark Market, The Literature Village will be at the heart of the festival, and will be brought alive by a diverse mix of activities and performances.

There are 30 market stalls available on Saturday, with possibly a few extra available at the top of the Mezzanine in the Buttermarket.

On Sunday the festival will take over the marketplace to include a larger performance schedule and a whole village of literature related market stalls.

The stalls are for people and businesses promoting or selling work connected to the literature sector. (Authors, writing groups, reading groups, publishers, booksellers, book illustrators, craft makers, book themed cakes, heritage sites etc).

We welcome applications from those who wish to make their areas as exciting and interactive as they can!

The theme for 2024 is Play!

Please note that a cancellation fee of £10 will be charged to any stallholders who do not turn up on the day without 24 hours notification.

Filling a form does not automatically guarantee a spot. Places are limited and subject to approval.

Once your stall and application has been confirmed we will send out your invoice to secure your space.

Thank you.
