Exhibit at the show

The Lustleigh show is one of the best regarded local shows in Devon, with thousands of visitors coming to our village.  A big part of our show is over 70 exhibitors, with their great products, displays, and more.  Why not exhibit with us?

Why exhibit at Lustleigh Village Show?

Lustleigh Village show provides the ideal opportunity to promote to a large audience, in a unique rural setting.

2019, 2022 and 2023 each saw around 4,000 visitors through the gate.  Many exhibitors reported record levels of engagement – selling more than at other similar shows.

We see many of our stallholders year after year, as they continue to choose us to showcase their wares.

Who comes to the show?

We attract a mixture of attendees, including Lustleigh residents and those from surrounding towns and villages including Bovey Tracey, Moretonhampstead, Newton Abbot, North Bovey, and Chagford.

The majority of residents in this area are in ABC1 categories, with high disposable income.

The show also attracts visitors and tourists.  The August Bank Holiday weekend means the potential reach is huge.

Who should exhibit?

We are selective about who we accept to exhibit at the show, as we are careful to maintain the character of our show.  You should apply if your business is in any of our priority categories:

  • handmade products
  • artisan food or drink
  • locally produced items
  • local businesses

We do not generally accept large businesses.

If you are keen to exhibit, you should apply early, as we also try to ensure that we do not have too many exhibitors selling the same types of product. 

What do I get when I exhibit?

Outdoor exhibitors get a pre-marked pitch (3x3m, or a double pitch 6 x 3m), for which you’ll need to provide your own metal framed gazebo, tent, or other structure.  Indoor exhibitors get a 3m x 2m pitch inside our marquee. You may hire furniture such as tables and chairs at additional cost. 

You will get a full listing on the show website, unless you specifically tell us otherwise, which includes a picture, detailed copy about your business, and links to your website and social media.  Click on Exhibitors or Food and drink for examples.

Satellite Wi-Fi is available for exhibitors to use with their card processing machines.

Caterers and indoor stallholders can connect to our electricity for a fee – generators are not permitted.

How is the show promoted?

We work hard to promote the show, including poster campaigns around the local area, advertising boards at strategic locations, and engagement through our website and social media.

Are there any restrictions?

All exhibitors should familiarise themselves with our rules – application indicates acceptance of these rules, and any exhibitor in breach on Show Day may not be able to trade, and will not receive a refund.

We also require you to complete a simple health and safety assessment, and if that raises any questions, our safety officer will be in touch.


The cost of exhibiting is made up of a pitch fee, plus extra costs for any furniture you require, and a charge for electricity hook-up. If you need electricity you MUST connect to our supply as generators are not permitted on site under any circumstances.

Outdoor pitches are:

  • £60 for traders
  • £30 for charities (limited numbers available)
  • Free for Lustleigh non-profit organisations

Indoor pitches in our large marquee are:

  • £75 for all applicants (limited numbers available)

Single catering (food and/or drinks) pitches (3m x 3m) are £175 each and double catering pitches (6m x 3m) are £250 each.
