West’s Wood Fair 2024

Taking place from 21–23rd June, West’s Wood Fair is an event that showcases the many interesting ways in which wood can be used.

Exhibitors include trade stands selling timber and many other wood-related products, demonstrations of sawmilling, pole lathes and hurdle making. To see the most up-to-date list, click here.


In addition to the above, there will also be gundog displays twice a day provided by the Hamble and Hound Gundog Club; a chainsaw race on the Saturday and Sunday in addition to pole climbing demonstrations across all three days; the British Lawnmower Racing Association will be running lawnmower racing on the Saturday and Sunday; heavy horses will be willing a wooden pole-waggon and putting on logging demonstrations, plus much more.

There'll be many other activities to take part in, such as axe-throwing; plant your own tree; try your hand at the timber identification competition; or hammer in the nail challenge, both of which are free to enter. The log roll will also be available, which is always popular with the youngsters.


A steam engine will be powering a sawmill, in addition to vintage tractors, other steam engines and lorries.

The chainsaw carving competition will run over all three days, and once again on Sunday, the public will be able to vote for the winner. See the chainsaw carving competition page for the 2023 results and the winning piece.

A wide range of food and drink will also be available. The Woodturner’s Rest – the event's specially built pub – will once again be opening its doors and serving a selection of locally produced real ales, plus live music throughout the weekend.
