CAR BOOT SALES

Every Saturday from mid-March to mid-October sees one of our famous Car Boot Sales in Bedale Park. These are arranged by Bedale Town Council, with sales starting at 6:30 am and finishing at around midday.

 

"Is Bedale Car Boot Sale On This Week?"...

Our Car Boot Sale welcomes buyers and sellers from all over the north of England every week with people coming from Newcastle, York, Leeds, Carlisle, Whitby and all places in between to enjoy the event and the town.

If the weather is looking dodgy, the decision whether or not the sale goes ahead is made by the Sale Supervisor in the small hours of the morning of the sale. We do not like to disappoint anyone and sales are only cancelled because of heavy rain or high winds, or because the condition of the park is such as to make it hazardous to bring vehicles onto it.

So to answer the question is always... "YES, the Car Boot Sale is on EVERY SATURDAY from March to October, unless it is cancelled at the last minute, because of the weather!"

 

Selling

If you wish to attend the Car Boot Sale as a Seller there is no need to pre-book. Just turn up on the day ready for the gates to open at 6.30am. There is a charge of £8 per car and £12 per van / car & trailer which is payable at the gate. Sellers need to arrive in time for the start of the sales and can access the park from the gate next to the entrance to Bedale Golf Club which is near the roundabout on the bypass. 

There is a sole caterer contracted to the Car Boot Sales and we do not allow access to any other caterers.

Buying

There is a little free parking available on Bedale Park (at the Bedale Hall end) for people attending the sale. The Park gates are locked shortly after the end of the day's sale at 1pm so please do not leave your car on the Park after this time. When the Park is full then there is disc parking available in the Market Place and there two reasonably-priced long stay pay and display car parks just behind the Market Place on Bridge Street. 

Raising Money for Local Good Causes

The sales are also an opportunity for local organisations to raise much needed funds. Each week a different local organisation runs the event and provides volunteers to collect then entrance fees, keep the Park tidy, ensure that the sale runs smoothly. 

The sales are supervised by Sockjohn Promotions with assistance from the charitable organisation of the day and all sellers and visitors wishing to park will be directed to specific locations within the park.

A full list of organisations running the sales in 2019 and further information about running a sale is available here.
