As thousands of people come to enjoy Piping At Forres 2017, the fifth 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 2017 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.

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

The deadline for application for a stall at Piping At Forres 2017  opened in January 2017 and closed on  31 March.  Stallholders are reminded that further information about the event is available here.

We are delighted to have  a good mix of traders for 2017, offering over 100 stalls, and look forward to welcoming both new and returning stallholders to Grant Park.

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 have nominatedsix charities to receive a stall free of charge in 2017.

In 2016 stalls were granted to 2wit2woo Owl Rescue; CLAN Cancer Support; Elgin Youth Development Group, Erskine,  Help for Heroes Charity;  Morayvia,  Royal Air Force Association and Speyfest 2016.
