FOOD HEALTH AND SAFETY REGULATIONS
Stallholders selling food must be registered with Environmental Health, and a copy of their food certificate on display at their stall on the day.
Food can be kept hot at your stall space with any type of warming device, but due to very sensitive smoke alarms, cooking is prohibited in the hall. However there is a commercial kitchen off the hall that you can use for cooking, but you will need to share it with other stallholders.
If you are running a food stall please bring all the equipment you require to prepare, cook and serve to the public. If you are wanting to wash dishes throughout, or at the end of, the day please bring all your own dishwashing liquid, tea towels and dish brushes to use in the kitchen. There is no equipment in the kitchen.
All stallholders cooking food must bring a fire extinguisher. Food trucks need either a fire extinguisher or a fire blanket. Cooking is not allowed indoors. Food trucks should have a current electrical WOF and a First Aid kit.
PLATES AND CUTLERY
All plates and cutlery used to serve visitors at the Expo must be eco-friendly. Please encourage your customers to bring their own reusable cups and containers as this will help reduce the amount of waste at the end of the day.
There will be general rubbish and recycling bins available for public use, but please bring your own recycling, rubbish, and food scrap bins, and take all your stall rubbish with you when you leave.
All electrical equipment must have a current electrical test tag. Any qualified electrician can do these tests. Caravans also need a current electrical warrant of fitness. An electrician will be available on the day to test and tag electrical equipment. Appropriate cost for a tag will be charged per piece of equipment, if you require our help.
CANCELLATION OF SITE
Refunds will be at the discretion of the organisers.
