Malvern Flea Fair April Bank Holiday 2019 Statement
The Malvern Flea & Collectors Fair is the largest event of its kind in the UK. As such it attracts a high volume of both stallholders and buyers. When the weather is kind - as it was over Easter weekend - the response to the event is even higher creating a bumper outing of what is already an incredibly large fair.
On Easter Monday we received an unprecedented amount of stallholders wishing to stand outside. Due to the sheer volume of vehicles - not all could be pitched up prior to the fair opening at 7:30am. We understand that this was incredibly frustrating for the stallholders – however we have a responsibility and duty of care to ensure all vehicles are parked safely.
We wish to offer our apologies to those that did not experience the first two hours trading due to the time taken to position all vehicles. Alan, Director of B2B Events, was walking around for most of the day talking with stall holders and taking on board comments. For those who have contacted us we will be in touch if we haven’t done so already, please bear with us.
At B2B Events we strive to learn from every fair and we are already reviewing our early morning parking methods and timings for the next May Bank Holiday.
