All the Fun of a Rural Fair

From morris dancers to ferret racing and bee keeping to basket making – join us for a day of celebrating all things rural at the 16th annual Wychwood Forest Fair.

The Wychwood Forest Fair, one of West Oxfordshire’s leading Green Country Shows, takes place this year at Lodge Farm, Ditchley Estate (off the B4437) on Sunday 6th September 2015.  Set in a beautiful countryside location, at the heart of the ancient Wychwood Forest area, the Fair is a great family day out offering a wide range of entertainment, rural craft demonstrations, music, food and much, much more.

Our large Arts and Crafts marquee, offers many opportunities to browse and buy interesting items and see local businesses showcasing their products and services.

The ever popular Rural Craft Area, will be filled with demonstrators from dry stone walling to hedge laying, from beekeeping to basket making and even a chainsaw carver.

Entertainers include Morris Dancers, Aunt Sally, Ferret Racing, Coconut Shy, Hatwells Fun Fair, and other Children’s Games.

Local Food Producers will be much in evidence and Refreshments from Witney Rotary Club, John Kench’s Barbecue, plus vegetarian food with an eastern twist, and local Ice Cream, all of which can be eaten whilst listening to the Witney Town Band.  The Wychwood Tea Tent, and Bar supplied by Wychwood Brewery will be much in evidence.

The Wychwood Project, who organise and run the Fair, is a registered charity that aims to inspire people to conserve and restore our unique local landscapes and habitats.  In addition to the Project’s own display some 30 community and conservation groups will be promoting ways of “doing your bit” for the environment and for your community.

All proceeds from this event go towards our on-going work of “Restoring Landscapes, Inspiring People” in the Wychwood area.
