The Maidenhead Show is a free to attend, not-for-profit annual 'country show in the town' in its 6th year, that brings together local people to celebrate their creativity. It is led by Craft Coop, a CIC that supports 150 'kitchen table' crafters with advice and low-cost shared retail space. The Show developed as Craft Coop volunteers were regularly approached by local people who had creative hobbies but felt isolated or didn't have an opportunity to share what they did.
The Maidenhead Show has grown from a table in the shopping centre to a multi-site event. In 2019 we are looking to make the Show bigger and better and will be moving to the High Street, making the event safer and larger with more car-free space. This increased space will enable more paying stallholders, supporting more small businesses and attracting more visitors
Our budget for this year’s show is £12,000 and we really need the support of local organisations, companies and individuals to meet our target and make sure we have a great event in our town.
The Show is volunteer-led and brings people together to celebrate local creativity in all its forms. The show is growing in popularity and funding would help us attract even more people, building a sense of pride in our town.
We hope the Maidenhead Show on 14 September 2019 will see us double attendance and secure the Show's future as a self-sustaining event in our town's calendar and the heart of our community.
Maidenhead Show is a standalone event, it is not a council-run or funded event, which is why your support is really needed and appreciated. Supporting the Maidenhead Show provides a great opportunity for your business to reach a large local audience, not only onsite at the event but also through our extensive online presence.
If you would like to discuss sponsorship opportunities for The Maidenhead Show with us – perhaps to fund a specific competition or to pay for a specific piece of equipment such as our stage and receive linked publicity – please see our sponsorship packages or contact us and we will get in touch to arrange a meeting.
