What does registering for the network involve?

At Midsummer Place, we recognise that the paperwork involved with markets can be very time consuming and as the old saying goes, "time is money", so we're committed to making our markets as efficient for all parties as possible.

The idea is the majority of the paperwork we'll need from you to participate in our markets will be completed at the point of registration, making individual bookings straightforward and fast.

The registration process works like this:

Step One

  • Complete the application form, telling us a bit about your business. The application form can be found here
  • The Midsummer Place marketing team will be in touch with you by email or telephone within two working days. If your application is successful, they will guide you through step two.

Step Two

  • The marketing team will help set you up on our portal. This will involve uploading your public liability insurance, a risk assessment, method statement and any other documentation that might be relevant to your business or set up. Please don't worry, the team will explain everything fully.
  • Once everything is ready, your profile on the portal will be submitted to our compliance team.
  • When you receive approval from compliance, your registration to the Midsummer Market network will be complete!


Moving forward to manage your network membership, all you will need to do is refresh your documents on the portal when your public liability insurance expires. Or, if your business changes in terms of the products / services you wish to bring to the centre or you would like to change your market set up in terms of the equipment you'll bring in, please contact the Midsummer Place marketing team to discuss further.

Once I'm registered to the network, what happens next?
