Teddy Bear Fair FAQs

What time can buyers arrive?

Buyers can arrive from 11am and the fair closes at 4pm.

How much does it cost to sell?


  • It's £39 for a six foot space (bring your own table)
  • Larger spaces available from £59
  • Hire a 6ft table from us for £5

Do I have to bring my own table?

If you don't have a table to use, you can hire one for the event when you book your space. Please make sure you add this option when you book and your table will be ready set up for you in your space on the day! We supply at least one or two chairs for each space free of charge.

What about Parking?

The Locks Heath Shopping Village offers hundreds of free parking spaces, however please be aware that parking is restricted to 3 hours. If you are selling, you can park outside the front of the building to unload. You will need to provide your registration number in advance of the event whilst booking. This is so you will not get any charges for staying over the 3 hour period. We provide this registration number to the Locks Heath Shopping Village management team in advance of the event so please make sure that the vehicle registration you provide us is the vehicle you will be bringing on the day. There is plenty of disabled parking bays right outside the building. Disabled parking will still need to provide us with registration details. Only one vehicle can be registered for free parking for each event. If you are bringing multiple vehicles, we recommend parking outside the centre to avoid possible parking charges. Sorry, Hants Events has no responsibility for any parking tickets issued due to non-compliance.

Is there disabled access?

There is very good disabled access to the event with disabled toilets and parking readily available.

What can I sell at this event?

Only stalls offering antique, vintage or new artists bears/animals/characters and bear accessories pertaining to this theme may book. Please send a photograph of what you sell to hantsevents@yahoo.co.uk before the event. No bric-a-brac or stalls that do not fit in with the theme of the event. If unsure please quickly ring me on 07841 660177 in the first instance.

What do I do before I book?

If you are interested in a space please only book after you have spoken to us (07841 660177 or 01329 484148) regarding availability as we wish to avoid doubling up on certain types of stalls. If you book without checking and someone else has already booked with the same stall type, we may have to cancel your booking and refund you. Of course most stalls will offer similar items, we cannot avoid this.

Do I need any insurances or certificates?

Yes we strongly recommend this. For this event you will need an up to date valid Public Liability Insurance (PLI). You will need to send us a copy via email to hantsevents@yahoo.co.uk or bring with you on the day.
