Stall Applications for Bicester’s Big Lunch are now OPEN!
OneBicester presents Bicester’s Big Lunch 2020 on Sunday 7th June. It is one of the largest Big Lunches in the UK with around 5,000 people attending, growing year on year. This year the Big Lunch takes up a cycling theme as we celebrate the Womens Cycle Tour Grand Depart Bicester, which takes place the day after, on Monday 8th June 2020. More details about the tour and events in the town centre will be announced soon.
Bicester’s Big Lunch begins with a Churches Together Service at 11am around the Town Clock with the main event taking place from midday until 5pm. There will be two stages, a performance arena and busking zones hosting local talent. In addition to some big cycle activities, NEW for the 2020 event will be a Dog Show hosted by Phoenix Dog Grooming.
Charities & Community Groups Stall Applications are free of charge, however there is an expectation that each organisation contributes to the event by providing at least one activity that visitors to the event can participate in. The activities you do can raise money for your organisation or another group of your choosing.
We’d love all stalls to be decorated with fun and bright colours and we’re encouraging all stalls to be creative with the cycling! There will be a competition on the day for the best decorated stall! The prize will be a £50 voucher for the winning organisation.
NEW for 2020 – We’re aiming to encourage all our stall holders to go single use PLASTIC FREE! Please pay special attention to Terms & Condition Items 13, 14 & 15. All stalls supplying food must provide recyclable or bio-degradable containers (boxes, plates, bowls, cups, cutlery). No Polystyrene containers or cups are permitted at the event. This will be enforced on the day with an additional cash charge of £25 if any stall holder is found to be in breach.
Please ensure you read our new pricing structure for 2020 and our updated terms and conditions carefully before making an application. By submitting an application form you accept all of our Terms & Conditions outlined below.
We would be very grateful if each stall (apart from charity & not for profit organisations unless you would like to) would donate a raffle prize of some kind to help us fund-raise to keep this event alive for 2020 and beyond! Please email email@example.com if you can help, Thank you!
