West’s Wood Fair 2018
08 June 2018 to 10 June 2018
10:00 to 17:00
West’s Wood Fair is an event featuring the many interesting ways in which wood is used.
Exhibitors include trade stands selling timber and other wood-related products and demonstrations such as hurdle-making, sawmilling, cider pressing and chainsaw carving. This year we also have a thatching demonstration. During the event we will have heavy horses pulling our wooden pole-waggon, tractor and trailer ride into the depths of the forest, and we’ll be firing our ballista across the field.
On Saturday and Sunday Adam’s Axe Men, the country’s best-known lumberjack display team will put on a thrilling performance in the arena.
There are activities to take part in, such as axe-throwing and archery and also several competitions including a Timber Identification Challenge with a top prize of £500 and a Chainsaw Race giving one lucky person the opportunity to win a STIHL MS180 chainsaw.
We will be opening our workshops and showroom for visitors so that you can look at our fine furniture and joinery and see some of our woodworking machines in use.
Food and drink is available plus a range of live music performances throughout the afternoon. We hope to see you there!
