The Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard

Saturday, 24 August - Sunday, 25 August

Celebrating its fifteenth year.

The Fair has exceptional arena demonstrations to watch which include the British Heavy Horse Loggers, falconry and the legendary Adam’s Axemen Lumberjack Display Team.

Around the fair there are plenty of unusual activities to get involved in including, tree climbing, pole climbing, axe throwing and archery as well as Ancient Tree Walks and interactive art workshops for kids in our designated children’s area.

While wandering around the shows’ walkways, expect to come across amazing craft stalls, furniture, homeware, gifts and more – all handcrafted from wood and other natural materials. Watch as some of our exhibitors demonstrate their craft at their stands during the day.

After a while refresh yourself with a trip to our Market Square to refuel at one of our bars and local artisan food stands.
