Stall Holders

Each stall booking includes:

  • 2m x 1m space
  • 6ft x 2ft table (if selected)
  • 1 chair
  • A stall sign
Electricity will be provided if selected on the registration form, however depending on the number of requests, this cannot be guaranteed

MCE have a no-refund policy and this is made clear when booking a stall. 

The stall location for each stall is chosen by MCE and thus stall holders are unable to choose their own location.  We set up the event in a souk style, so all similar stalls are kept together.

The set up timings will be sent a few days before the event.  The time will be specifically allocated to each stall holder.  In general, stall holders will be asked to set up on the night before or 3-4 hours before the event starts

No.  All payment must be made online once a stall has been approved

One of MCE’s strengths is promoting the event and this event will be promoted using the following channels:

  • 10,000 A5 leaflets delivered throughout Rochdale and surrounding areas
  • 100 posters will be placed around key places in Rochdale
  • Large banners will be placed near the event
  • There will be heavy promotion on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter included sponsored/paid ads
  • We will be asking mosques, churches, temples, schools and local businesses to promote the event
  • Local interviews on local stations including ads

The event should be promoted on every channel possible:

  • Share the poster on social media including WhatsApp
  • Share the Facebook event on social media including WhatsApp
  • Share the poster on storylines
  • Email your contacts
  • Invite your family, friends and work colleagues

The more each person involved in the event promotes the event, the better the event will be.  This is your event as much as ours, so promote, promote promote 🙂


Yes, the event is free entry

The event is an awareness event, part of the nationwide campaign: Unite For Palestine.  As such this event will  not be raising money for any cause or charity.  

This year, MCE hope to raise awareness about Palestine, primarily educating people about Palestine, its culture and the significance of Jerusalem and Masjid Al Aqsa.

Any money raised from the event will be used to cover the cost of the event and any surplus will be put towards the Unite For Palestine campaign.

Everyone at MCE is a volunteer

There is free parking around Castlemere Community Centre including Castlemere Street and Mere Street.

The event will start at 12pm and finish at 6pm


Register on our website and a member of the team will be in touch with next steps

This will depend largely on your availability.  In general we operate on a rota system so everyone can work for at least 2-3 hours and then finish for the day or take a break and carry on.  

We are all volunteers at MCE, we have fun, we work together and try our best to make the event as good as it can be

There are lots of opportunities to help make the event a success including distributing leaflets, managing social media, marketing, managing stalls, working on the infamous MCE food stalls, tidying up after the event and working together with a bunch of like minded people who want to help make a difference.

Yes! Every volunteer that attends the meetings and helps out on the day will receive a free t-shirt.
