Hunter Arts Network’s next Art Bazaar at Lambton Park is being held on Sunday 27 August 2023 from 10am to 3pm!
Bump in information
We email bump in information to all stallholders within 24 hours before the event which shows what times and where you can drive on, unload, drive off, park your car, return and set up. This information will also be posted on our website and socials at the same time. After you have driven to the designated bump in area unload your vehicle and then move your vehicle to the on street parking and then come back and start setting up your stall.
We are very grateful to have Newcastle Men’s Shed helping us again on the day. Newcastle Men’s Shed will be available to assist bumping in and bumping out to those who need it from 6.30am – 9.30am and 3.00pm – 4.30pm
Remember safety comes first and our major concern is the wind
Provide your own 3 x 3 metre market tent – this MUST be a good quality gazebo for example OZTrail

Small kit of stationery items ie scissors/safety pins/black marker texta/sticky tape
Pack the car the night before
Leave your day to day handbag at home and only take what is essential for security reasons/bring a small crossover bag for your change/ or bumbag
If you are by yourself tell ALL your friends to drop in and say hello so you at least get a toilet break!
Introduce yourself to your neighbouring stalls

Plenty of drinking water
If you make clothes of jewellery, wear it on the day
Be doing something with your hands, sewing or painting or other making as people like seeing creative people being creative, it not only creates a topic of conversation but you are not sitting there starring at the customer, freaking them out
