As thousands of people come to enjoy Piping At Forres 2018, the sixth and final year in which this event will take place in Forres, we are delighted to offer opportunities for  local businesses and organisations to demonstrate their excellence in food, drink, craft and other produce to both local and international visitors.

Sponsors

We are very grateful to all our sponsors and funders for Piping At Forres for their support, without which Piping At Forres would not be possible.

There are opportunities for sponsorship of Piping At Forres 2018 at a number of levels and in number of ways to suit different businesses and budgets. Sponsorship packages are designed to give sponsors opportunities to promote their businesses through marketing and a retail presence on the park as well as providing an opportunity to entertain guests in the Chieftain’s marquee. Further information is available here

The event is run on a not for profit basis and the financial and other support of our sponsors and supporters makes a vital contribution to the event.

Traders and other exhibitors

We are delighted to have had a good mix of traders for 2017, offering over 100 stalls, and look forward to welcoming both new and returning stallholders to Grant Park in 2018. A full list of 2017 stallholders is available here.

The deadline for application for a stall at Piping At Forres 2018  will open in January 2018 and closed on  31 March.  Stallholders are reminded that further information about the event is available here.

Charities

Piping At Forres is run by Forres Events Limited, which is a not for profit organisation. The costs of running the event are significant and despite the generosity of our sponsors it is not feasible to offer discounted prices for stalls to all charities. However, as in past years,  the directors will nominate six charities to receive a stall free of charge in 2018.

We are leased to have been able to help a number of local and national charities in this way, including:  2wit2woo Owl Rescue; Cantraybridge, CLAN Cancer Support; Elgin Youth Development Group, Erskine,  The Falconer Museum, Findhorn  and Nairn Fisheries Trust, Forres Community Woodland Trust, Forres Soccer 7s, Help for Heroes;  Keith Kilt and Textile Centre, Knockando Woollen Mill,  Moray Inshore Rescue Organisation, Morayvia, Moray Gaelic Group, Moray Sports Foundation, Poppy Scotland, Riding for the Disabled, Royal Air Force Association, Scottish Wildlife Trust and Speyfest.

Lists of sponsors and stallholders

Lists of sponsors and stallholders for 2018 will be made public before the event.

We are very grateful to Sponsors and Stallholders for their support in previous years; as listed below.
