What companies say about us:

“As a company we have attended over 700 trade shows across the U.K. in the last 10 years. Hadleigh is certainly one of the best one day shows and it’s why we come back year after year.  The show is well organised and publicised and draws in not only a big crowd, but high quality customers wishing to spend and have a great day.   We love it and I would highly recommend it to visitors and companies alike.  What makes this show extra special are the staff and organisers who look so smart on the day and who take such great care of us!”

Adrian Turner, Yum Yum Tree Fudge

“The Hadleigh Show is a great family orientated day out and I have enjoyed attending both as a visitor and as an exhibitor for many years. The friendly atmosphere always makes for a relaxed, fun-packed day. Exhibitors and trade stands offer a wide range of great products with the focus very much on local businesses. As an exhibitor, it is one of our highlights, with visitors always friendly and keen to talk to us about what we do, and very often making a purchase.”

Andrew Cooper, Walnes Seeds

“We always enjoy attending – it’s one of our favourite shows and keeps us very busy!
