We have an ecellent site on the corner of two main avenues in view of the main ring at this event.

The Show attracts visitors from accross the whole of the South East, the reduction in farming and the increase in service industries has produced high employment and a good spending power from a mainly urban visitor although the event strongly promotes the equestrian and farming local culture.

We have a specialist food area within the craft pavilion and we are allowed to cater so we have a small piazza of chairs and tables, facing the Hackney Ring, to hold our visitors and enhance their enjoyment.

To comply with Health and Safety you must brng your own flooring if you are a food exhibitor and don’t forget to let us know if you are using gas so we can position you against the pavilion wall, you will also need to make sure the length of your gas pipe is long enough as the gas bottle will be situated outside the pavilion.
