Green Initiative

We aim to reduce the environmental impact of our one day Show to make a positive contribution towards reducing harmful waste products.


The Show is working closely with its contractors and visitors to better control the use of environmentally harmful products and is looking to use energy more efficiently for the benefit of all.

A huge portion of our sustainability programme can only be achieved with the help of our visitors. We encourage visitors to take their rubbish home with them, bring their own cups, plates and cutlery, and recycle as necessary when they are on the showground. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own filled water bottles to use during the Show.

We are already working hard to encourage our trade stands to make changes to the way they organise their stands to be more sustainable. All trade stand exhibitors are invited and encouraged to take part in the Sustainable Futures Award competition, an award given to exhibitors in recognition of their environmental and sustainability ethos while exhibiting at the Show.

As we move towards Show Day, new initiatives will be introduced so we hope you will follow our progress as we make steps towards becoming carbon neutral.

A Park & Ride service runs on Show Day to help minimise the impact of cars at the showground.
