LITEs stands for Local Independent Trader Events and was formed in 2018 by a small Committee of like-minded traders. Our motto is “More Than Your Average Craft Fair" and if you see the current types of events we are producing you can certainly see why.
We run Retail Shopping Events which are Pop Up Shops with multiple Traders in Shopping Centres and Town Centres. We also love working on collaborative events with other organisations, where we provide the exhibitors and/or event organisation. We are constantly expanding the collaboration side of LITEs and are always on the lookout for new places to complement our existing partnerships.
Many of our events are themed where you can find interactive family fun as well as our exhibitors joining in and getting dressed up to reflect the theme of the event.
With events by LITEs you can guarantee we will have a wide variety of traders while also following a non-duplication policy. We want our traders, and our customers, to have the best experience possible at a LITEs event.
We also curate the Trade Stalls for the A5 Live Festival to ensure that we provide an immersive experience of quality stalls to add value to the Festival experience.
At LITEs we look after our traders and only charge what is necessary to cover our venue, advertising and marketing costs.
We also offer space! No more being squashed in a tight space where you are unable to manoeuvre.
We also do our absolute best to offer a variety of stalls with no overlaps or duplicate traders. This gives every trader a fair chance at selling.
If you are interested in exhibiting at any of our events please use the Contact Form with details of your business and what you sell so that you can register your interest in any of our events and keep up to date on any new events we are planning.
“More Than Your Average Craft Fair!”
Most of our events are held in local venues within Staffordshire, including a local Music Festival and local Garden Centre where we collaborate with the organisers to add to their offering. This offers everyone a great opportunity to visit our traders in totally different environments.
We also hold some of our events in town centre retail units which offer you the opportunity to pop in and browse from our specially selected traders and find something unique whilst out doing your everyday shopping.
We are always looking for new venues and opportunities so watch this space!
