Trade Stands

This is a ready built stand for you to simply 'move in' and furnish with your branding and products. It includes floor space, carpet, walls and name fascia.

SPACE ONLY: £95 + VAT per

This is exactly how it sounds, only floor space. It often suits those who prefer to build their entire stand from the ground up. The mininum stand size available is 6sqm (e.g 3m x 2m or 4m x 1.5m).


The autojumble is extremely important to this market. Autojumbles up and down the country keep the trade in rare old parts, books, manuals, badges (and a myriad of other items) going. This area is always thriving, always delivers superb sales for our regular 'jumblers' and sells out early!

Autojumble from £140.00 + vat (4m x 2m Space Only stand)

Classic Trader Village

The Classic Trader Village/Small Business area is designed as a budget option for small traders offering new classic motoring based products. Like the autojumble this is a market-style area, but presents a superb opportunity for smaller companies.

Classic Trader Village from £245.00 (3m x 3m Space Only Stand)
