Who we are
Compass Events has been running Boat Jumbles since 1994 and runs some of the most successful events in the U.K. Because we trade at most Boat Jumbles with our sister company, Compass Marine, we have a good understanding of what is required for traders and customers alike and our sites are places that are capable of coping with the large number of cars and visitors we get – The Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Newton Abbot Racecourse in Devon & Margam Country Park in Wales to name but a few.
We endeavour to keep our gate & stand prices competitive and we make every effort to ensure that there is a reasonable mix of different items being sold by our traders in new goods (although we can’t predict what the marine car booters will bring!). We also ensure that all the traders and private sellers know that they can only sell items relating to all things nautical so our customers aren’t faced with people selling tea towels and eggs! and all of our events have toilets, refreshments and first aid cover.
In 2005 we launched this website and became the first U.K. organisers to have fully interactive, secure, online booking for our sellers.
