Tearfund Tea Garden
YES DEAR, IT'S TIME FOR TEA
A kind of Alice in Wonderland meets Wimbledon; this is about as English as it gets. Unwind a little, (perhaps with a glass of Wiston Sparkling), on freshly mowed lawn, served in easy earshot of exceptional music and flowering gardens. Our friends at Tearfund host a welcoming cafe, where you can sip from vintage crockery and enjoy a delicious cream tea. New artists and old favourites take to The Garden Stage, and with artisan foodies and handmade crafts sold in The Tea Garden Market you may well find yourself sticking around.
The Tea Garden Market
The Tea Garden Market is located in the gorgeous green gardens of Wiston Estate, in earshot of the Tea Garden stage. It’s a festival favourite to many, overflowing with creative curiosities and crafts. It is the perfect place to explore some wonderful independent businesses and find some familiar faces from years before.
We are thrilled that for another year we are joining together with Tearfund to provide you with the treasures of the Tea Garden Market! Tearfund passionately believes that poverty is not God’s plan, and that ending extreme poverty is possible. Tearfund partners with local churches and organisations around the world to play its part in ending poverty through community transformation, responding to disasters, and challenging injustice. Change can happen through prayer, finances, advocating, campaigning, or making lifestyle changes.

When will I know if my application to exhibit/advertise has been accepted?
Once applications are open and we have received your application, we will respond to you within 14 days to let you know if your application has been accepted. If you haven’t heard from us after 14 days, then please let us know by emailing [email protected].
When do I need to pay if booking an exhibition space?
After your application has been accepted, you’ll be sent an invoice which will need to be paid within 14 days.
Do you accept applications to exhibit/advertise on a first come, first served basis?
Our aim is to provide the best experience for our guests, exhibitors and advertisers. We may reject applications if we have already received applications from similar trades or ministries. For this reason, we advise you to submit your application as soon as possible.
Do you accept organisations to exhibit if they don’t have Public Liability Insurance of £5 million?
Most stands/stalls will need insurance cover of at least £5 million. However, if your stand is a table and pop-up only, then we can accept Public Liability Insurance of at least 2 million. If you are unsure please email [email protected]
Should I apply to be in the Expo or in the Tea Garden Market?
The Expo and the Tea Garden Market are very different. The Tea Garden Market is only open to businesses that fit the criteria of ‘unique or handmade artwork, craftwork or gifts’. If you’re unsure, feel free to email us at [email protected].
Do I get a discount if I book advertising plus a space in the Expo or Tea Garden Market?
Our advertising opportunities are highly sought after and an essential income stream to support the event so unfortunately we cannot offer a discount on these opportunities.
