Thank you for visiting this page and for your interest in the National Forest Wood Fair.

The Wood Fair will not be taking place in 2016, but instead, Leicestershire County Council will be staging a Leicestershire Countryside Show at Beacon Hill Country Park on Bank Holiday Monday 29 August 2016.

The Show will feature familiar attractions from the Wood Fair such as lumberjack displays, tree climbing and birds of prey, and will introduce new highlights including sheepdog demonstrations and countryside art and photography displays.

The National Forest will be there, celebrating its first quarter century! Come and find our marquee, where you can meet Woody Tree again, and share your love of the Forest in pictures, words and stories for our 25th anniversary ‘My National Forest’ archive. See more at
