The Big Textile Show

New Dates: Saturday 28th (10AM-5PM) and Sunday 29th (10AM-4PM) OCTOBER 2017

Venue: Leicester Racecourse | KUBE Oadby, Leicester LE2 4AL

The show will cater for all textile mediums and we aim to appeal to all those interested in textile crafts.

There is a large, bright area for the marketplace and this year it will be in the same area as some of the Exhibition, thereby offering an excellent footfall opportunity.

The trading level is at ground level and next to the main entrance allowing for easy access for loading/unloading.

FREE parking is available for everyone.

The Big Textile Show is now in its FIFTH year! We plan to repeat the event annually. We aim to offer our visitors a quality experience and only traders who provide high quality products and services will be able to participate.

Last year was the best so far and the 2017 show will benefit from even more advertising and of course the wonderful “word of mouth” publicity that is generated by such a great event.

We are looking for a small number of quality stalls, predominantly selling textile supplies and tools rather than finished products. There will be a limit of around 30 stallholders, and we anticipate up to 2000 visitors a day.

We are confident that we can attract plenty of visitors, as we feel that our admission price reflects good value for money (easily accessible venue, free parking, lots of free activities, quality food, select but comprehensive traders, large programme of workshops and talks).

Standard single space. 2 x 2m with 1 table provided and 2 people         £195

Standard double space. 4 x 2m with 2 tables provided and 3 people     £275

It may be possible to provide larger spaces by special arrangement. Please contact us to discuss.

You may provide your own tables etc if you prefer. Some spaces have a back wall and a small number of screens are available for hire.

There lots of power points in the new venue. If you require power, please let us know.

We have carrid out extensive testing are can confirm that excellent mobile telephone signals with 3G/4G and FREE WiFi will be available again this year!

Set up will commence at 12 noon on Friday 27th October and the venue will need to be vacated by 6PM on Sunday 29th October. The premises team will be on hand throughout.

We want to work closely with our traders. If you have questions that are not answered in this document please e-mail us:
