Tree Shepherd nurture organisation selection criteria*:

We reserve the right to refuse an application. In certain cases an individual may not be deemed by Tree Shepherd as ‘business-ready’ for trading at the Country Show and will be supported in the business clinic until they are at a stage when they are ready to go to market. This is part of our commitment to duty of care and responsibility as a nurture organisation.

Please note that this is not ideal as a first-time trade experience and the level of test-trading or trading to date will need to be considered.

Your business needs to be an active business in your name and, to be clear, manning a stall for somebody else’s business will not be accepted.

Due to limited space available, in cases of over-subscription, Tree Shepherd reserves the right to apply alternative selection criteria. This may include selecting on a lottery-basis.


Payments must be made by the due date on the invoice and we reserve the right to cancel your place if payment is not received.

Please note that from Monday 13th June to Friday 1st July, any cancellation made by a trader will be asked to pay a cancellation fee of £20 to cover the basic cost of administration our side.

Any cancellation made by a trader on 8th July or afterwards will not be entitled to any reimbursement at all.

Updates on trading at the show will be loaded onto this page in due course.
