Thanks for booking in for Harbour Nights!

Here’s a short guide to getting set up on the evening. Please have a read through and if you have any questions, or if there’s anything we’ve missed, just let us know by email on hello@buoyevents.co.uk.


There will always be an event manager on-site and we’ll let you know who that is in the pitch allocations. For all other communications, (including lateness, last-minute cancellations, etc) please send us an email.


Allocations will be issued the day before the event. Make sure to read the notes with the allocations as we often include important information which is specific to that particular event and please make sure to identify if there are any errors with your allocation (i.e, an electric hook up has been missed off).

Pitches are allocated at our discretion but as always, we will try to accommodate pitch preferences where possible.



You are welcome to begin setting up from 3.30pm and Harbour Nights is open from 5pm – 10pm. It is important to make sure you are set up and ready to trade at 5pm and that all vehicles are off the site before we open.

Please note, traders arriving late may not be able to trade at all.


For Harbour Nights, you are welcome to pull up at your pitch and unload. Once unloaded, please move the vehicles to a more suitable area (identified on the map) before beginning to build your stall.

There is on-street parking on Prince Street (free after 5.30pm), otherwise, Mud Dock car park is the nearest Pay & Display.

Please access the site by the entrance on Prince Street (just before the bridge) as you can no longer drive along the waterfront.

Arrival/set up from 3.30pm.


Food Area Traders:  Power is limited to 1 x 16amp supply per stall, so please bring a 16A plug and cable to reach your pitch.  Supply is strictly limited to 3kW per stall, so check the wattage of each of your appliances and make sure you don’t exceed this.

Drawing too much power causes the whole supply to fail, and in extreme cases, can cause an electrical fire.

You are responsible for ensuring all appliances, extensions and hook-ups have an in date PAT-test certificate.

Gas appliances must be transported, stored, and used in compliance with GAS SAFE recommendations.  Hoses must be in-date, safety certification up-to-date, and canisters safely secured out of reach from the public.


All traders must bring evidence of up-to-date public liability insurance every time they trade. Food traders must also bring a valid food hygiene certificate.


If you see anyone acting in a suspicious manner at or around Harbour Nights, please call 999 immediately and without hesitation. Avon and Somerset Police also have an Anti-Terrorist Hotline which you can reach at 0800 789 321, while anti-social behaviour can be reported to 101.

Market Managers are not cleared to engage with anyone participating in dangerous, suspicious, or anti-social behaviour, and it is best to contact the police right away. Please report any other issues to the on-site manager.

If you have any questions about emergency procedures, please raise them with one of our Market Managers.
