Visitor Information

Three days of live demonstrations, 600 exhibitors and thousands of products for the quarrying, construction and recycling industries.

Held in a limestone quarry, Hillhead has maintained its reputation as the UK's largest quarrying exhibition, welcoming 20,000 visitors from across the world who come to experience the show's unique atmosphere, meet suppliers and see the latest equipment, products and services on offer. 

Hillhead would not be complete without its live demonstrations. The Quarry Face, Crusher Alley, Recycling and Registration Demonstration Areas will once again showcase a host of plant and equipment, all being put through its paces in a live quarry environment. See our dedicated demonstration page for details.

We look forward to seeing you at the next show in 25-27 June 2024.

Child Policy

Due to the nature of the event, please be aware that children under the age of 16 will not be admitted to the show under any circumstances. To avoid disappointment, we advise younger visitors to bring proof of age as ID checks will be in operation.


Due to uneven ground conditions in the quarry, we advise visitors requiring assistance to contact the organisers in advance so that the necessary provisions can be made. See our Accessibility page for more information.

Unless required for assistance, dogs and other animals are not permitted on the exhibition site at any time. Please do not bring pets to the event as you will be refused entry. 


Hillhead takes place in a quarry, the ground is uneven and consists of loose rock and gravel. We request that visitors wear sturdy, suitable footwear and allow for British summer weather - rain coats and sun cream! 


"I was stunned to see the vast amounts of technology and machinery...from types of soaps, to types of chains, to huge processing plants...the variety of products was impressive!"


"The live demonstration and size of the exhibition makes it a perfect place to get a fast but efficient overview of the UK construction and quarry business."


"The Show gets bigger every time and the exhibitor number and quality go up every time."


"It’s a great opportunity to see a selection of products in operation, it's a professional show for professional people."
