The medieval week’s different markets and theme areas, also called Medieval Islands, are unique in their kind and the extensive rules exist to ensure quality.

Our goal for the markets is that participants, market stalls and market goods together should give a good illusion of a medieval market. The goal of the exhibition camps is that the visitor should be welcomed into another time, another world. By signing the contract, you agree to abide by these rules.

– All types of goods / activities / services offered in the Medieval Islands must be approved by Medieval Week.

Medieval Week approves products and materials that may have existed in the Middle Ages.

Addition 2022: Medieval Week approves products and materials for selected parts of the Medieval Islands that fit into this year’s Fantasy theme.

Products that are:

  • of medieval character and feel
  • inspired by the Middle Ages
  • made of materials that existed during the Middle Ages
  • made with medieval technology

The agreed upon space may not be extended, for example through sales on the ground in front of the market stall.

Control measurements will be performed on site. Extra space will be charged afterwards. Fill in your registration of interest thoroughly and sincerely so the organizer can support and help you in the best way.

The organizer has no cash handling in place. Your marketplace must be paid for before arrival. If the organizer has not received payment before Friday 29/7 2022, your place will not be measured.

The designated place must be used at all times.

If the market participant runs out of goods or for some other reason is unable to maintain his presence on the site in accordance with the specified days in the notification, the market coordinator must be notified. Debiting takes place according to what is stated in the application.

Market opening hours must be respected! For the period 7 / 8-13 / 8 2019, the following opening hours apply: Sunday to Saturday 11: 00-19: 00, Sunday 14/8 at 11: 00-16: 00.

The market stall must be of a medieval character and made of wood or wrought iron.

Iron pipes/profiles are not allowed! Ceilings and walls are in fabric, wood or other timeless material. Everything modern must be camouflaged with timeless material. Make sure that the “back” of the market stall is clean and tidy. Think of a proper and nice shielding of work and storage areas.

In case of rain: If you need to protect the roof/goods in case of rain, sew a duvet cover to a tarpaulin that you can put on your tent or market stand.

Signs must be designed in a medieval character.

It is most contemporary to use symbols and speak for the goods. Handmade signs in wood or matte fabric (linen, cotton, etc) with text are allowed, but remember to use medieval fonts! Modern signage (refers to materials, fonts and design) is not allowed.

Market goods may not be exposed on: Paper towels or in cardboard boxes, metal cassettes, in plastic bags, in plastic carafes, in thermoses, in foil or on plastic hangers. Do not keep plastic bags and disposable materials visible.

Plastic cutlery may no longer be used when selling and serving food. The cutlery offered must be of environmentally friendly material, such as wood or bamboo.

Vendors and others staying in the stalls must be medieval-clad.

Think about the shoes too! All sellers should wear headgear. A tip is also to search for movies and pictures from Medieval Week on Youtube or Google for inspiration. Simple tunic, sack or similar over modern clothes, sneakers etc are not accepted.

Sales of coffee and alcohol in the market area are reserved for the organizer.

Sales of carbonated beverages are reserved for restaurateurs with a special agreement with the organizer. Carbonated beverages must not be on display in the market stall.

Vehicles in the area are only permitted for delivery and unpacking to and from the market stall outside market opening hours.

All vehicles must be removed from the marketplace no later than 60 minutes before the market opens. Note important! The reason for this is that there is a great safety risk for the visitor if cars are driven around in the market area after opening. The car-free area is also a very important part of the experience for the visitor – both for the visitor who arrives at 11 am and the one who arrives later in the day.

High demands are placed on waste management. Medieval Week strives to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Garbage sorting is applied.

Accommodation in the market stall must be reported and paid to the organizer before arrival. Only market exhibitors with the permission of the organizer may spend the night in the area. Overnight stays must be reported and approved by the organizer.

EIectricity is available for those who need it.

The electricity fee is a sum that includes: Consumption, Connection fee, Service costs

If you need electricity: Indicate this in the registration form.

Only you who have pre-ordered electricity can be prepared for electrical connection.

Own protective earthed cables (Classification IP44) must be included. If an electrical breakdown occurs and the organizer can trace the breakdown to you as a market exhibitor, you will be liable for compensation.

Control measurement may take place. If the withdrawal turns out to be larger than what was ordered, there will be a control fee and an increased charge for extra consumption. S.k. “black connection” to the mains leads to immediate rejection from the market area.

Electricity is provided Saturday 6/8 to Sunday 14/8.

You may be placed according to your choice of power consumption.

There is a charging station at the market coordination booth for charging phones and card machines.

Only protective grounded extenders approved for outdoor use (rating: IP44) may be used.

Maximum 230v, 1000w, may be removed with a standard plug. For higher outlets, a three-phase connection (16A / 32A) must be used.

All market participants must leave the area no later than 12.00 on Monday 15/8

If you leave bulky rubbish in the marketplace, you will be charged per kg.

If you remain, you will be charged SEK 3,000 / day. Access to toilet trolleys and electricity in the area is only guaranteed until the market closes officially on Sunday 14 August at 16.00. Then all are referred to the public toilets in the area.

Cancellation of approved participation must be made in writing (by letter or e-mail)

The administrative fee of SEK 750 (incl. VAT) is non-refundable.

In case of cancellation: 15 – 30 days before the last due date for payment (Friday 29/7) 25% of the participation fee will be charged.

7 – 14 days before the last due date, 50% of the participation fee will be charged.

I – 6 days before the last due date, 100% of the participation fee will be charged.

The organizer reserves the right to evict market exhibitors who do not comply with market conditions and/or Swedish law. No compensation or damages will be paid to the evicted exhibitor.

Do not hesitate to contact the organizer if you have any questions or concerns. [email protected]
