ABOUT US SHOPFEST was founded in 2010 with the aim to give independent traders professional events to showcase their work and promote their business. Whilst providing the perfect place to network! Shopfest have been at the forefront of Gift Fair management for over 8 years under the enthusiastic guide of Dee Ball and her trusty team – many of whom you know already Kim, Tjoe and Alexander who are on hand to make sure things work, because we care about what we do.
Our events portfolio has included locations in Sussex and Hampshire. We have hosted events in Horsham, Crawley, Warnham, Longstock Park Nursery, Leckford Estate, Hampshire which is owned by the John Lewis Partnership and managed by Waitrose and Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking. In addition to the events The SHOPFEST craft and gift shop in Horsham offered traders and other crafty creatives an opportunity to showcase their work for sale in a professional retail environment, we had a fantastic run until the expiry of the lease in 2015.
So here we are just about in 2018 and we have introduced The Handmade Affair to help support Artists, Makers & Creatives by offering subsidised stalls. This is our 8th year of hosting bespoke craft and gift shopping events. This is our 6th year at Denbies Wine Estate, Surrey which is our favourite venue to date! We are passionate about delivering shows that people will really enjoy – both traders and customers alike! So whether you want to buy a beautiful gift that you could not buy on the high street, or buy some delicious food from a specialist gourmet food maker, or simply enjoy a day of wonderful day in the Surrey Hills we really do aim to provide a great family day out for everyone.
