Trade Stand Applications

trade stands Stanhope Show

Calling all Businesses

Annually we welcome thousands of visitors to Stanhope Show which provides an excellent opportunity to get your business in front of an appreciative audience.   We aim to ensure a diversity of trade stands and as such we will not accept multiple applications from businesses of a similar nature.

Please note our Festival of Shopping Marquee is now full and we are only taking bookings for outside space from our reserve list. Please contact the General Secretary, Lisa Johnstone on 07966516270 if you are unsure if you are on the reserve list.


Trade Stand Space

You can book space for your own marquee, gazebo or trailer.  You will need to provide your own gazebo, table, chairs etc.  We do not provide any equipment.  Please note when booking that the measurements are exact.  If you book 20 feet frontage that is what you get and if you need extra space to access the rear of your trade stand please book extra space.

Festival of Shopping Marque

If you prefer to be part of our vibrant, colourful inside shopping marquee please book space inside our marquee.  Each booking consists of one 6 foot table and 2 chairs.  You can book more than one 6 foot space but tables should not be re-arranged or moved.


Please Read Prior to Applying

Please note that completing and returning an application form DOES NOT guarantee you a place at Stanhope Show.  Whilst we will make every effort to accommodate your stand; we aim to provide a diverse range of trade stands.  As you will appreciate this is better for both visitor and trader.

**We do not accept applications from trade stands serving hot or cold food, ice cream vendors, burger & take away vans or any other food intended to be consumed on site. Please email for details of our tender process regarding the sale of food for consumption at the show.**

**Fair ground rides, prize games and tombola type stands should not complete an application form and can email our General Secretary for details.**

**IMPORTANT. When booking trade stand space make sure if you require a walkway at the side of your stand you book extra space for this. Space is at a premium and if you book 12 feet that is what you get. There is no additional room allocated for walkways to the rear of your stand.**

In case of query please contact Lisa Johnstone, General Secretary on
