So Rural Crafts and Shopping Hall may sound very obvious but here’s a little more information for you!

We decided to revamp the Craft Hall in 2015 by renaming it the Rural Crafts & Shopping Marquee – we are still mainly focused on craft related stands, but also like to encourage local providers of products which may be of interest to our visitors to also apply. Often these exhibitors are too small for one of our tradestand options, yet are a welcome addition to our Rural Crafts and Shopping Hall.

Every year we have many local businesses from all over the South East come along and set up their stands selling items that they’ve created, hand made and built themselves. There is a huge range of stalls in this Hall all ranging from photography stalls, to hand made trinkets, to knitted pieces of clothing, to hand made leather items, wooden items and jewellery. So if your looking for a unique present for a loved one, friend or a little treat for yourself, then pop along because the likelihood of finding the perfect give or treat is very high!

The Rural Crafts & Shopping area is a marquee where we can provide power, tables and chairs as required (additional cost). We offer the choice of 6 foot stand at £60, 12 foot stand at £90 with a power socket at £20. 6 foot tables at £7 each and chairs at £3.50.

We ask everyone to apply and then Sophie Bennett the Area Organiser for 2018 will select which companies to accept based on room available, minimising duplication and of course suitability. We do our best to accommodate everyone, but we understand it is not fair to the exhibitor or the public to have multiple stands seeing the same or similar products.

If you are interested in apply for a stand for next years show on Sunday 20th My 2018 please send us details of your product along with your contact details. Email us at, phone us on 01245 360442 or complete the forms below.
