Went last year and I'll be going again this weekend. Can't be off it for the money, and in my opinion it's better than the Bushcraft show at £20 a pop.

Also ask a lot of questions about making hurdles with Holly as I've got a lot of Holly to remove as its taking over in big areas

We're hoping to make the trip from our house in Stourbridge on Sunday. Looking forward to it.

Had a real great day there today. The weather was fantastic and the activities and stalls were well worth the journey from Stourbridge. Came back with our wallets a bit lighter after buying some tools. :D

Now waiting for another fair, hopefully a bit nearer to Stourbridge.

Yeah. Couldn't complain for the money, but it seemed, to my eyes at least, a bit smaller than last year.

Didn't purchase any tools this time around as my selection is brimming in the shed, and besides, the bank manager hates me already.
