Information For Trader/Participants

We are pleased to announce our first event in Greenwich with Cutty Sark Gardens providing both the perfect historical backdrop and an established destination where locals and tourists congregate during the Spring and Summer months.

We will benefit from natural footfall and build the numbers of visitors with an offer that focuses on live music, international foods and drink. Craft stalls are also welcome to apply, particularly if you can add colour and vibrancy to the festival feel. Local businesses can take advantage of this bank holiday event by promoting themselves through the festival website and being part of our social media campaign.

Our aim is deliver a truly inclusive event that will appeal across a range of age groups and interests - we would love to hear from any community focused groups, local musicians, artists and dance groups that would be interested in taking part.

We are always looking for special venues in which to stage our themed events and Cutty Sark Gardens is one of the more spectacular to date.

As usual we will provide a seating/dining area together with a live music stage and craft beer festival to create an entertaining atmosphere.

This is an opportunity to establish another event and make a little of our own history. We look forward to receiving bookings from businesses offering a range of fresh produce, street food and associated culinary products.

Event features will include a street food court featuring a variety of ready to eat offers as well as speciality drinks, groceries and craft stalls.

There will also be a live music stage and a bar area offering the best of British and International craft beers and ales as well as rides for the children.

Interesting Facts About The Venue

Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship. Built on the River Clyde in 1869 for the Jock Willis Shipping Line, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development, which halted as sailing ships gave way to steam propulsion.

The opening of the Suez Canal (also in 1869) meant that steamships now enjoyed a much shorter route to China, so Cutty Sark spent only a few years on the tea trade before turning to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for ten years. Improvements in steam technology meant that gradually steamships also came to dominate the longer sailing route to Australia, and the ship was sold to the Portuguese company Ferreira and Co. in 1895 and renamed Ferreira. She continued as a cargo ship until purchased in 1922 by retired sea captain Wilfred Dowman, who used her as a training ship operating from Falmouth, Cornwall. After his death, Cutty Sark was transferred to the Thames Nautical Training College, Greenhithe in 1938 where she became an auxiliary cadet training ship alongside HMS Worcester. By 1954, she had ceased to be useful as a cadet ship and was transferred to permanent dry dock at Greenwich, London, for public display.
