Welcome

Join us at the National Forest Wood Fair, 31 August 2015 from 9am to 5pm.

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, ​climb into the canopy of an oak tree, 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!
