Get involved!

Surbiton Food Festival Food Stalls

Our aim is to make the festival bigger and better each year and would love to work with you and offer you and your business the chance to get involved in a variety of ways

There are many ways you can get involved in Surbiton Food Festival. Here are a few of the ways you can do so:

  • Sponsor the Festival
  • Have your logo in our promotional material
  • Put on your own food events
  • Have a stall at one/more of the main festival events
  • Do a demonstration
  • Donate a raffle prize
  • Help plan and co-ordinate the festival
  • Volunteer


This is a fantastic way for you to get out and about and introduce your business to new faces. As with previous years, celebrations will be spread over three flagship weekend events:

  • The Seething Freshwater Sardine Festival (Sunday 3rd May)
  • The Surbiton Village Food Fete (Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th May)
  • Seething Community Sports Day (Saturday 17th May).

You are able to have a stall at all or just some of these events.

Requests for stalls are coming in thick fast, so act quickly to secure your spot by filling the form below.

A stall allocation provides a 3x3m space. You are responsible for providing your own gazebo and furniture. Power is available on Fete days at an extra charge. Please select this option on your application form if required.


We can tailor-make a sponsorship option for you. The main sponsors are on the front page of the website, given the space in the programme and listed on the train cards. Supporters can place their adverts in the SFF 2019 program which goes through 10k letterboxes in the Good Life Magazine.

Surbiton Food Festival Supporters

There will be 10,000 leaflets/festival guides printed and distributed. If you would like your logo to appear on our promotional material and on our website, please select the appropriate package. Supporter logos should be submitted via the online application form, be in jpg format and no more than 1mb. If design work is required, this service can be provided at an extra cost.

Host your own event

We are very keen on ensuring that there is something happening around the town throughout the two weeks which is an opportunity for your business to take the lead. Hosting in-house events have proved a great success for many varying from coffee tasting sessions to pizza making lessons.

Why not consider a collaboration with another Surbiton business? Perhaps you host the event and they have space or vice versa. Once more, we value creativity so please rack your brains as to innovative ways to get new customers through your doors. If you’re looking for a venue then the new community kitchen at the Museum of Futures may be the perfect location for your demonstrations/workshops/talks or pop up event.

All participating events will be listed on the festival website, Facebook page, Surbiton Food Festival App and in the 10,000 festival guides printed (if informed in advance of print deadlines).
