Trader and Exhibitor Information

Hello! Thank you for considering being a trader and/or exhibitor at the Weald & Downland Living Museum’s major events for 2019.

From 2019 onwards we are taking a seasonal approach to our events and will stage four Big Weekender events, one for each season. Each will transform the museum into a thriving bustle of rural crafts, traditional countryside demonstrations, expert talks, family fun and artisan makers not to mention show ground parades and competitions.

Our Big Weekenders for 2019 are:

5 & 6 May – Spring Weekender – The Good Life: Revive, Recycle, Restore

17 & 18 Aug – Summer Weekender – Saddles & Steam: Horse-Power to Horse-Power

5 & 6 Oct – Autumn Weekender – Autumn Countryside Show: Farming, Food & Horticulture

22, 23 & 24 Nov – Winter Weekender – The Christmas Market

Each will have its own distinct feel and flair offering something different for visitors and traders alike. For more information about each show, follow the links above.

Alongside our Big Weekenders, for 2019 we will also stage The Rare & Traditional Breeds Show on Sunday 14 July, a one-day event celebrating the modern day farming community and their livestock. More information about this show can be found here: https://www.wealddown.co.uk/events/rare-and-traditional-breeds-show/
