Welcome

Join us at the National Forest Wood Fair, 31 August 2015.

The Wood Fair is our annual celebration of timber, trees and woodcrafts, an action-packed day with lumberjacks, chainsaw carvers, wood mizers and horseloggers.

You can have a go at eco art, cheer on the log to leg race, hitch a ride on a tree lift and hear stories from the Wild Man of the Woods. There’s loads of fun for the kids!

The National Forest

The National Forest is one of England's most ambitious environmental projects. Across parts of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, 200 square miles are being transformed, blending ancient woodland with new planting to create a new national Forest.
