Trade Hall

The Hidden Earth trade hall is a great place to buy discount gear and see what new shiny things you might not have yet! Why not treat yourself to that new caving suit you've wanted - you're unlikly to get a better price than at Hidden Earth! Traders don't always have everything with them so if you want anything specific, please contact them directly and they should be able to bring it along for you.

Along with gear you can buy a whole range of products such as new and used books and journals, artwork, gifts, pottery and much more. Not forgetting surveys and other products from the various club stalls.

Show off your club, gain new members or display your discoveries. A single table or poster space is free and additional tables can be purchased for a moderate fee. Electricity is also available if required.
