West's Wood Fair 2016 West's Wood Fair is an event featuring the many interesting ways in which wood is used. Exhibitors include trade stands selling timber and other wood related items and demonstrations such as hurdle-making and chainsaw carving. We will also be hot-tyring a wheel and firing our new ballistae across the field! During the event there will be heavy horses pulling our wooden pole-wagon, and Adam's Axe Men, the country's best known lumberjack display team will be in the arena to thrill and entertain. You can join in with activities such as axe throwing and archery, and you'll also have an opportunity to win in our chainsaw race! Our workshops and showroom will be open for visitors, so you can take a look at our fine furniture and joinery and see some of our woodworking machines in use. Food and drink is available, and later on in the day you will be able to enjoy live music provided by a selection of different performers.
We hope to see you there!
