A fun family fair with a countryside theme

Help the Forestry Commission celebrate 100 years of forestry with a fun wood fair for all the family.

Watch demonstrations of traditional forest skills such as pole lathing, spoon whittling and hurdle making. You can even have a go at carving your own wooden spoon to take home or purchase a range of wood crafts from our visiting craftspeople.

There will be some big machinery on display and you can watch a chainsaw carver create a unique wood sculpture throughout the day.

Join a foraging walk with one of our talented volunteers, timings will be displayed on the day. Hawks in the Forest will also be offering Hawk Walks at 11am and 2pm for £5 per person. Simply sign up on the day to take part or you can have your photo taken with a majestic bird of prey for £2.

There will also be an opportunity to have a go at Archery or try out your Bushcraft skills. Charges apply.

There is no need to book in advance. More information will be available nearer the time so please check back later, or just turn up on the day and join in the fun!
