Events in Dorset
Stock Gaylard Oak Fair
An annual event, the Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard near Sherborne in Dorset, is held in the wonderful natural setting of Dorset countryside and woodland.
Bringing together a talented and eclectic mix of woodland workers, from woodcarvers to stick-makers, wood-turners to furniture makers, around every corner there is someone who is ready to stop whittling away and talk about their love of the countryside.
The Oak Fair is about playing in amongst the trees, watching giant 'wood-eating' machines, seeing planks being shaped to make a table or bench or traditional toys being created from blocks of wood.
The much loved event is held within the mature Oak Parkland on the Stock Gaylard estate and the 160+ exhibits are guaranteed to absorb every member of the family; from woodcarving to pole lathe turning, rustic to fine furniture, sculptures to toys, chopping boards to huge platters, chipping machines to mobile sawmills and garden furniture to green timber buildings.
Attractions include dramatic chainsaw carving, Heavy Horse Loggers, and a children's area where scarecrows can be built and mazes mastered. There is also a food market of South West food producers, falconry displays, tractor rides, tree climbing and a workshop in circus skills.
