West’s Wood Fair is an event featuring the many interesting ways in which wood is used.
Our exhibitors include trade stands selling timber and other wood-related products, and demonstrations such as sawmilling, cider pressing, thatching, firing our ballista and also our chainsaw race and chainsaw carving competition.
We will be having heavy horses pulling our wooden pole-waggon, a tractor and trailer ride into the depths of the forest, and you will also be able to have a ride on a sentinel steam powered lorry. Adam’s Axe Men, one of the country’s best-known lumberjack display team, will be putting on a thrilling and entertaining performance in the arena.
There is a wide range of food and drink available. The Woodturner’s Rest (our specially built pub) will be opening again and will be serving a selection of real ales throughout the weekend. We will have lots of live music, the Skimmity Hitchers are joining us and more will be announced.
