If you are looking for something a bit different to do why not come to the Major Oak Woodland Festival in Sherwood Forest which will take place on 12 & 13 September 2015. This is the second year that the festival has taken place and it is hoped that it will continue to be an annual event.
It is a special weekend celebrating the life and history of British woodland, set in one of the most famous woodlands in the world – Sherwood Forest. There will be lots of events and activities taking place for all the family with demonstrations and displays. Learn all about Bodgers, see how charcoal is made, or watch the chainsaw demonstrations.
There will be a chance to see the traditional and modern day management techniques that have shaped Sherwood’s past and made it into the forest you see today. It will be a weekend of heritage crafts, traditional toys and storytelling. The Wild Man of the Woods will be on hand to ‘talk’ to the trees. You can see bugs and critters or learn all about beekeeping. There is sure to be something for everyone.
This is a free event with a small charge of £3 for the car park. See www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/sherwoodcp for further details or ring 44 (0) 1623 823202
