Matterley Estate, Winchester 

Thank you for your interest in trading at Boomtown 2024. Boomtown's ethos has a huge focus on sustainability, so please bear this in mind when submitting your application. One of the key things we look for in our traders is individuality and something that stands out! We collaborate with businesses with character, as well as offering unique and fantastic quality food.

Trading days are from Wednesday to Sunday, all traders must arrive and be fully set-up by Tuesday so pitches can be signed off by our H&S team. Please note Boomtown is a Cashless festival, more info will be provided to successful applicants. By being a Cashless event we are able to lower the up front costs for traders and work on a revenue-share basis to make the festival more accessible for a wider variety of food businesses.
