Bridgemary Car Boot Sale
Bridgemary Car bootsale will be closed indefinitely due to Covid restrictions. Information will be updated 2021.
Bridgemary Car Boot is run all year round from 7.00 am until 1.00 pm every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. (Excluding Christmas and New Year weekend) During the summer the Boot Sale takes place on the school field unless the ground conditions are unsuitable. There are 250+ spaces on hard standing for when the field is unusable. In addition to this there are, for the less hardy car booters, 60+ spaces available for hire inside the building.
There are hot and cold refreshments available from the school dining area and most weeks there is a roundabout and/or a bouncy castle for the children.
Money raised from these events is used to improve the facilities and educational opportunities for students of the school. The central courtyard was partly financed by the Car Boot Sale and this attractive red and cream bricked centre and grassed area with picnic tables provides a welcoming touch to students and car booters alike! There is extensive free parking for buyers visiting the car boot sale, but we politely request that car owners use the school car park and do not obstruct the roads in the surrounding areas.

Winter is defined as times when we use the hard areas due to the condition of the field such that to use it might cause serious damage to the ground or pose a safety hazard for visitors.
Inside Stalls - £8.00 per table (table can be supplied, but an extra table (e.g. a pasting table) may be used behind the table provided).

- No food or drink to be sold.
- No guns knives or other weapons, including air rifles and BB Guns, to be sold.
- NO DOGS ALLOWED ON SITE (except guide dogs and similar).
We have made a decision to ban dogs from the carboot sale site including the car park. This decision has been made on health and safety grounds. Owners are not allowed to exercise their dogs on the site which is in effect private property. If you live locally and use the site to exercise dogs we would urge you to stop now.
There are a number of diseases transmitted by dogs and through dog excrement even after it has been cleaned up. This is important as the site is used by our students for sports and other recreational activities.
We would point out it is Hampshire policy not to allow dogs on school sites.
We thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
How to book
All bookings: 07881 786556
Outside pitches are not bookable. As you arrive you will be directed to a parking spot where you set up your stall. In summer there is normally space for anyone who turns up. However this changes in the winter, and sometimes in the summer, when the field is too wet to use. In these circumstances we are restricted to a maximum of about 250 cars. To make it fair in wet conditions, where possible each pitch is set up between designated marks, if you want more space you must pay for more than one pitch.
Inside pitches Don't be put off by the wet and cold when you can book and inside pitch for just £8.00!
This gives you a table 6ft 6in X 2ft 6in (approx) in the Main Hall or Gymnasium.
We have room for over 50 indoor pitches.
If you want extra space, set your paste table up behind the table provided or even book 2 pitches together. Tables can be booked by ringing Natasha Coote on 07881 786556 during the week before the boot sale you wish to attend.
