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.
Can I cancel my booking?
Of course! Unfortunately we can not transfer bookings so if you have to cancel for any reason, here is our cancellation and refund policy:
If you decide to cancel part or all of your booking before the event, you can request a refund and this will be given no matter what the reason subject to a £10 administration fee per booking (up to 30 days before the event). This covers all and any unrecoverable charges, fees and costs involved as well as the risk of non - re-sale. For cancellations & refund requests thirty days or less before the event, these will not be entitled to any refunds under any circumstances. Bookings are non transferable.
