When is it?

Where is it?
Why are there several tickets? The event is popular, and we want to ensure everyone has a good experience in a well-managed market. The timed tickets help us know how many people to expect over the day. Please try to arrive within your chosen time slot. Otherwise, you may have to wait to be let in. There is no queue-jump option, but don’t worry, we will ensure everyone with a ticket can come inside.
Can I buy a ticket on the door?
Yes! We have a limited number of tickets on sale. We encourage you to buy in advance as the tickets are cheaper and you’ll avoid disappointment. Please note, we cannot guarantee entry for those without a ticket and may have to ask you to be patient or come back when it is a little quieter.
Can I bring pets?
Yes, well-behaved pets are allowed inside the premises. Be sure they’re safe, comfortable in crowds and be advised we have no bins on-site for waste so be prepared to take it away with you. If it becomes busy, please use your discretion on whether your pet is best suited to come inside, we reserve the right to make a recommendation on the door, so please be prepared for this.
What about children?
Yes, children are welcome and any child under 12 goes free! Be mindful that it is an afternoon and evening event with alcohol being offered on the premises. But, we also have glitter face-painting and soft drinks.
Where can I get a workshop ticket?
Workshop tickets will be released on Eventbrite in November, the price is set by the workshop facilitator. All workshop tickets include the entrance fee for the Market.
Shall I print my ticket?
We are Zero Waste – so encourage you to bring your ticket along on your phone via an email confirmation or on the Eventbrite app.
Can I leave and come back? Yes, of course! But if we are at capacity you might have to wait until we’ve had a few guests leave, so it’s best to come and to stay if you can.
