Supplier Assistance

When attending Saltcote Place we will ensure you have all that you need to present your product or service to its very best. We will ensure you have access where needed and crucially that you can get away without issue when you need to.

We would ask that you email us before the day to indicate your estimated time of arrival and perhaps on the day a courtesy phone call to 01797 222220 just prior to arrival will ensure we move other vehicles out of the way so you have the access you need.

Once you have setup we will ask that your vehicles are moved outside of the gates as soon as possible to assist other suppliers.

We have two wide wheel trollies to assist you moving any equipment. Do not drive any vehicles onto the grass within the gates without first obtaining permission from the owners in person.

The intention is to leave the drive clear for imagery and spaces at the front will be reserved for suppliers who may need to leave early. No Vehicles must park on the shaded area and please do not drive onto our lawns once inside the gate.. The postcode for Saltcote is TN31 7NR

Music - DJ - Band
All speakers MUST face out toward the coast and at a downward angle so that if you were projecting light it would not extend directly past the edge of the garden. Having a "Line array" speaker setup which directs music onto the dance floor from above will see that you are always welcome back.

All equipment needs to be setup and tested before the event starts. You will be in a Marquee.

Base and Volume
Excessive base or volume is not the sign of a good performance, we will ask for adjustments if in our opinion we feel anything is excessive. Remember your sound check in an empty space will require lower base levels when guests arrive as the treble will be absorbed by the guests.

At close of play you must make an announcement along these lines "Thanks to Saltcote Place for having us, hope you have enjoyed yourselves. When you leave please could you leave quietly and considerately to respect the lovely neighbours and don't forget you can leave your cars here until 13:00 tomorrow at your own risk of course.

Flat surfaces near the dance floor - Speakers, candy bar, photo booth etc.
We will not permit any flat surfaces in close proximity to the dance floor that could be used to stand glass on. Thank you for helping us reduce the risk of injury from broken glass. Items such as speakers must have an angled tops to prevent drinks being placed on them.

Changing Facilities
There is no "green room" if you require changing facilities please use the toilets, some event organisers will arrange for a separate rest room so you can relax when not performing. The house is not able to provide this facility.

Mains power
Please provide evidence of PAT testing if you intend to plug anything in.

Photography and Video
We have a complete set of all images for each event we have hosted, your attendance is on the understanding that we will receive a full set of your images. We recognise the value of the skill and undertake not to release or publish them without the relevant permissions and will always ensure you receive full credit.

Public liability, professional indemnity etc should be emailed prior to arrival to paul@saltcote.co.uk without it you will not be permitted to work here.

Catering for suppliers
Our catering team will have a list provided by the event organisers that explains who is being fed and with which meal. We assume you have already arranged this with the organiser of the event. Once the Guests have been fed we will come and find you, please do not enter the catering facilities.

Nothing is to be taken down when Guests are present unless specifically authorised by the event organiser. Please leave any marquee by the shortest possible route and do not walk through guests. Next day removals may be dependent upon the marquee which often comes down early the day after an event. You are responsible for the well being of your equipment, so good communications are essential.

Please stay under 5mph in the drive as there are two footpaths exiting onto the drive where dogs and children could "suddenly appear" we have lovely neighbours and are keen to keep it that way. Be aware that CCTV does cover the full extent of the drive.
