Shropshire Outdoor show

When we moved to Shropshire from essex in 2016 It was, quite literally, a breath of fresh air. pollution free, birdsong filled fresh air. we've always been outdoorsy types, but tucked away in a dark corner of the Thames gateway as we were meant a journey of hours to get anywhere we considered worthwhile. wales was a trip of something like 6 or 7 hours; we're now 60 minutes from mountains and welsh beaches!

after falling in love with the county, I started to get the feeling that it would be the ideal backdrop for an event geared towards bushcraft, survival and outdoor pursuits and so the Shropshire outdoor Show was born!


the ethos behind the S.O.S. is to be a family and trader friendly event that people want to come back to year on year. where a good atmosphere and fair treatment are more important than egos and control. where our traders and demonstrators can share their products and skills through demos and workshops that the public can immerse themselves in.

We're looking for outdoor activity providers and country product traders that can bring the outdoors to the Shropshire outdoor show for a weekend of educational interaction and fun. If you’re a trader who has skills that you can share with visitors to the show in a demo or a hands-on session, you’re exactly the kind of person we’re after!


To provide full-on days for the public, we are looking for people with skills in the following areas:

Bushcraft, camping and shelter building,

Hiking, trekking and geocaching,

Green laning and overlanding,

Wood carving and basket weaving,

Fires and fire lighting,

Wild food foraging and campsite cookery,

Story telling, music and juggling,

Smallholding and beekeeping,

Chainsaw sculpting and operation,

Air rifles, airsoft and paintball,

Birds of prey, dogs, pigeons and ferrets,

Archery and shooting,

game and fishing,

Rock climbing and abseiling,

Kayaking and canoeing...

or anything else you feel can bring something special to an outdoor pursuits event!
