BENTLEY

Woodfair 2016

Bentley welcomed over 150 exhibitors to Woodfair this year. Celebrating all aspects of wood, the show has remained true to its original ethos of 'Forest to final form'.

 

Exhibitors ranged from trade stalls to traditional crafts, forestry equipment to falconers. With such a wide range of stalls, there really was something for everyone.

 

A massive thank you to all the exhibitors, demonstrators, speakers, and main arena acts who helped to make this year such a huge success. Thank you also to the thousands of visitors who came along to support and enjoy the show. We have started the planning for next year already, and very much hope you will be back to join us again next year. Show dates are:

 

Friday 15th - Sunday 17th September 2017

For now why not spend 5 minutes enjoying the short film of this year's show made for us by the very talented Ewan Michael Riley. Please also see Ewan's website for more of his brilliant work - www.ewanmriley.com.
