Trade Stands…

We’ve always been proud of our reputation for welcoming a varied number of trade stands to the event and over the last few years, we’ve averaged over one hundred at each Spilsby Show.

Space for stands at the event is available on a first come, first served basis.

Coming soon | download our 2023 trade stand forms.

We welcome applications from a wide range of businesses however please do be mindful that we cannot accept all of the applications that we receive. It remains important to the organisers that each trade stand has the best chance it can of enjoying a positive day and therefore we reserve the right to refuse/return applications from stalls where we feel that we have already accepted enough applications from businesses offering similar products or services. Downloading our trade stand form and returning it to us does not guarantee you the opportunity to trade at the Spilsby Show.

Outdoor trade stand pitch information.

Outdoor pitches for trade stands are sold in metres. The minimum space you can order is four (4) metres wide (or approximately thirteen (13) feet). Each metre is priced at £12. Therefore, the minimum cost for a stall is £48. There is no maximum size for a trade stand pitch. We will try our best to accommodate every request we receive however space is likely to sell quickly so please book early to avoid disappointment. You can increase the width of your pitch at a cost of £12 per metre. For example, an eight metre pitch would therefore cost £96.

Outdoor charity stand pitch information.

Outdoor pitches for charity stands are sold in metres. The minimum space you can order is four (4) metres wide (or approximately thirteen (13) feet). These spaces cost £30. There is a reduced rate for charity stands however in order to qualify, applicants must be a registered charity and state this number on their form. A limited amount of space is available for charity stalls. You can increase the width of your pitch at a cost of £7.50 per metre. For example, an eight metre pitch would therefore cost £60.

Indoor pitches are sold in 10 foot wide x 8 foot deep units. A wooden table (approximately 6 foot long) and two wooden chairs are included in the price. Indoor trade stand pitches cost £25. These spaces are marked out inside our Indoor Trade marquee.

Additional information for all applicants.

In order to trade at the Spilsby Show, we need to hold on file, copies of various documents before we are able to accept your application and supply you with your entry passes. The documents we need to see will vary depending upon the nature of your application.

Common documents applicants must supply include:

  • Public Liability Insurance.
  • Certificate of Motor Vehicle Insurance.
  • Food Hygiene certificate.
  • PAT test certificates for electrical appliances.
  • Risk assessments.

In order to trade at the Spilsby Show, it is essential that we see your Public Liability Insurance. We cannot allow you entry to the event without it and a copy of your valid insurance must be supplied with your application.

Passes for entry to the Spilsby Show.

Two entry passes will be sent with each successful application. We will also supply a pass for your vehicle, allowing this and two staff members to enter the show to set up. Additional passes can be purchased should you require more. If you do not produce a valid pass at your designated point of entry, you will be politely asked to pay the full entrance fee.

Exhibitors parking.

If your application is accepted, your exhibitor passes and entry information will be sent to you prior to the day although this will not be until a few weeks before the event. Exhibitors will enter the showground via the red entrance which is accessed by turning off the main A16, entering Boston Road and following the signs. The postcode for satellite navigation users is PE23 5HL.

Setting up.

Our volunteers will be working on site for a number of days prior to the show in order to ensure that our exhibitors can set up in good time. Exhibitors will not be able to set up before 3:00pm on the Friday afternoon prior to the event. Exhibitors can also set up on the Saturday from approximately 10:00am. On the morning of the show, exhibitors can enter the site to set up from 6:00am.

When you arrive to set up, you will be given your pitch number by a member of our team. The pitch number will be a letter and a number, for example, A1, A2, B1, C1 and so on. You will then be able to drive onto the showground and set up on your pitch. The pitch will be marked on the ground with coloured line-marking spray. The pitch will be marked at each end. The pitch number you were given will be shown on a small peg. This will have been placed into the ground in the middle of your pitch at the front, facing the public thoroughfare.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next Spilsby Show.
