Food Vendors

DTI Food Vendor Information


What is DTI?

DTI (Dreaming the Impossible) is a Christian youth conference aimed at young people aged 12-18. DTI runs at Staffordshire Showground from the 27th July to the 1st August 2024 and will have up to 5000 people attending.


The Food Court

We have a food court at DTI where the young people and team can buy food throughout the week. Typically each youth group would cook their own meals on the campsite and use the food court for buying extra food throughout the week. We aim to have around eight food vans onsite offering a range of food and cuisines. As DTI is for young people we aim to keep costs as low as possible to make the food court available to all.


Food Court Opening Hours

Sat 27th July



Sun 28th - Wed 31st

08:00-11:00 (optional opening for vendors selling breakfast items)




How much does it cost?

We charge a booking fee of £250 which must be paid to secure your pitch at the festival. On top of this we charge a 15% commission on your gross income throughout the event. Please see our terms and conditions for our full prices and refund policies.


Is there an application deadline?

All food vendors need to have applied by the 31st May 2024.


Environmental Impact

At DTI we recognise the impact that waste generated from mass gatherings can have on the environment. We therefore maintain a policy of minimum waste across our site, and aim to run a plastic free event. We ask that food vendors do not sell drinks in plastic bottles, instead, we ask that only biodegradable plates, cups and cutlery are used for serving food and drink.



We are able to accommodate food vendors and their staff in a designated area on the campsite for free. You will just need to bring a tent and all that is required for camping.


How can I apply?

If you would be interested in attending DTI as a food vendor, please read our terms and conditions for vendors which can be found at the bottom of this page. We then ask you to fill out a short application form which can be accessed here.

Our operations team will be in contact after reading your application to let you know if your application has been successful. Please email if you have any questions.
