Thankyou for joining us. We
wish to make your exhibition a pleasure and easy to take part in.
MILE OF ART and GRASSYARTZ
events have become important low budget venues for talented yet
mostly less well-known artists
not obligatory if the weather
forecast is dry, we hope most of you will invest in your own
inexpensive Gazebo to
be completely independent, rather than relying on prefabricated
market stalls. Apart from the extra space offered by a gazebo, you
can then bring your own covered tables and boxes, chairs and
whatever else you might need for the day.
from the allocated market stalls in Broadway market, to make
things simple, we have arranged for equal spaces along the eastern
pathway of London Fields, and Goldsmith Row South for gazebos and
umbrellas. The first to apply should be able to specifically
identify their preferred spaces. The hours are;
set-up (vehicles in)
(vehicles and bikes out)
(2.30 pm official welcoming)
(vehicles allowed in 5.15pm)
(There will be stalls selling food or drinks on London Fields and Goldsmith Row, as well as stalls and hostelries
in Broadway market and Pub on the Park).
packing material and bikes, cars, barrows must be cleared and out
of sight from 10.30am. Similarly you may not breakdown your
display or leave before 5.00pm.
biggest sales are frequently made during the last hour of any art

system at the organizers office at the OFF BROADWAY gallery. An
organizers table will be available in each of the four sections to
help you and the visitors. PORTALOOS will be available at regular

all the time, DON’T LEAVE HAND BAGS OR CAMERAS LYING AROUND.
Please try to start from about 8.30
We recommend that you bring a friend or two to help you cope with
a potentially busy day. It will probably be sunny but cold,
particularly before 11.00
and after 3.00
in early October, so wrap up
to stay warm.
mark all your prices on each item. It is required by law. Please
have leaflets and business cards available, particularly as sales
often occur days after shows end. It is recommended that you
don’t let customers take pictures away unless paid for, or until
cheques have been cleared. For your customers, ATM cash machines
are available in at least two convenience stores in Broadway

responsible for keeping the surrounding space litter-free,
particularly before leaving. This applies particularly to the food
