Delighted to announce we are going ahead in 2021

Shopping Marquee

Shop ’til you drop in our Festival of Shopping Marquee. Bringing the very best independent producers to Stanhope.

Shopping Marquee

Fabulous festival of shopping

Our fabulous indoor shopping festival is situated in a large marquee, providing visitors with the opportunity to buy from a wide range of independent, unique traders.  Stanhope’s very own festival of shopping is always popular and early booking for stands is recommended. 

The stalls are located in 300 square metres of marquee which is based along the hill near the rail side. A very impressive and welcoming marquee which can be seen by visitors from all across the showground. The marquee has pitches for around eighty stalls and each year our shopping marquee boasts the very best creative goods and products, from confectionery to meats, cheeses to preserves, jewellery to bags and much more. Due to the huge increase in visitors to the show in recent years, the stalls have become very popular so it is a good idea to book early.
