The Major Oak Woodland Festival 2018


Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 June 2018

The Major Oak Woodland Festival has now become a firm favourite on the Sherwood Forest calendar.

This family friendly event melds the mystery of Sherwood’s past with the more modern. Visitors can see traditional woodland skills plus more modern management methods.  There are plenty of ‘have a go’ activities plus fun stuff for the kids.

Organised as a partnership between SFT and the Ranger service of Nottinghamshire County Council, the craftspeople, exhibitors and demonstrators are ‘locally sourced’.  If you’re an enthusiast or woodworker, many offer helpful tips and advice.  It’s a great place to chat and share knowledge.

Meet bodgers, Windsor chair makers, wood colliers, wood turners, knife smiths, wooden toy and furniture makers, archaeologists, conservation organisations, Friends of Groups and charities and much more.

This event is pushchair and wheelchair friendly.

Spread the word so the all may flock to this celebration of the finest heritage woodland in the world!


FREE entry. Parking £3.
