Our year-round package of trading opportunities is second to none

… and now that you’ve found us, you’re just a few clicks away from weekend opportunities free from such avoidable drama.

Our organisation began as exhibitors. As we traded at shows great and small, we found ourselves musing over what some organisers got right and where they could do better. The seed grew and soon, we’d come up with our ideas on how we could put together the ideal space for exhibitors and consumers alike.

Today we are the UK’s premier provider of shopping marquees. You can find us at all the top agricultural and county fairs. You may have already seen our bespoke, branded, bunting-blazon, big tops at major events, if not, then allow us to introduce ourselves.

We are Cottage Industry Events

Today, we provide what we believe is the best trading opportunities for traders anywhere in the UK.
