The Showman Show 2019

The Outdoor Event Services Exhibition

We are delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting the 2019 Showman Show for the third consecutive year. This fantastic exhibition caters for the festival, outdoor and events industry, attracting on average 4500 visitors every year. The two-day show takes place at the Newbury Showground on the 16th and 17th of October.

In 2018 the UK events industry saw promising growth with reports showing a sector revenue of £42bn. With 25,000 businesses in this sector and over 7,000 events organised every year you can begin to get an idea of how successful this industry has become.

Throughout the twelve years of Bluestar’s history, we have helped hundreds of outdoor and event companies with finance for their new or used equipment. With a wide portfolio of lenders and range of funding solutions to choose from we can finance almost any asset…

  • Marquee Structures
  • Catering Equipment
  • Refrigerated Trailers
  • Staging & Lighting
  • Flooring
  • Vehicles & conversions
  • Furniture
  • and more…

Our team will once again be exhibiting in the ‘Marquee Pavillion’ section of the show, where free food and beverages are available. A clay pigeon competition will also be taking place at the back of the tent for anyone who has a steady hand.


The show allows visitors a chance to see and demo the latest innovations within the festival, outdoor and events industry. From state of the art mobile bars and marquee structures to lasers and special effects, the show has a little bit of everything.
