Welcome

Thank you to all our lovely visitors and exhibitors who made our 10th anniversary National Forest Wood Fair such a great event. Despite the rain, thousands of people enjoyed the full day’s programme of demonstrations, ‘have a go’ wood craft sessions and children’s activities, celebrating all things to do with trees, timber and woodlands.

If you came along to this year’s event and would like to help us plan for next year, we would really appreciate your completing our online visitor questionnaire. It will take just a few minutes, your feedback will help us greatly and you could win a family ticket to next year’s event. Thank you.

See you next year – look out for confirmation of the date.
