Areas to exhibit or advertise

The Tea Garden Market

The Tea Garden Market is located in the gorgeous green gardens of Wiston Estate, in earshot of the Tea Garden stage. It’s a festival favourite to many, overflowing with creative curiosities and crafts. It is the perfect place to explore some wonderful independent businesses and find some familiar faces from years before. The Garden Market is now sold out for Big Church 2024!

The Expo

This market-style venue offers you a chance to share your organisation’s resources, gifts, ideas and treasures with the thousands of people on-site. It is the perfect place to raise awareness of your organisation’s work, whilst feeling fully immersed in the event. The Expo is now sold out for Big Church 2024!



“We launched our Christian clothing business at BCF and couldn’t have asked for a better response. We got to meet so many amazing people, and share our story and kick start our new business. We had so much fun exhibiting with others whilst being able to enjoy the festival as well.”


“We exhibited at Big Church Festival last year. It was the most successful stand we have ever had. The place was buzzing! We were so thrilled with the results for our ministry! Thanks BCF”


“We absolutely love be apart of Big Church and look forward to it every year! The team are a joy to work with and the Expo area is a highlight – a great buzz, loads of people passing through and you’re guaranteed quality conversations and connections!”


“BCF is our biggest exhibiting opportunity of the year. It’s by far the largest and most diverse Christian crowd you will find in the UK in one place for 2 full days. BCF has been critical for us in unlocking the doors to a wider Christian audience and we have engaged with so many people that we wouldn’t normally reach.”


“We love being a part of the Tea Garden Market. It’s such an amazing place to meet other small businesses and creatives all with the same heart of sharing God’s love. But by far the best thing for us is the face to face conversations we have, hearing stories where people have felt encouraged, inspired or lifted up in their faith by the work that we do.”

Do I get a discount if I book advertising plus a space in the Expo or Tea Garden Market?

Our advertising opportunities are highly sought after and an essential income stream to support the event so unfortunately we cannot offer a discount on these opportunities.
