Wood & Craft Fair - an update on 2020

Ickworth has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Wood and Craft Fair. It would have been our 31st year of the fair, however due to Coronavirus, we cannot go ahead for this year.

With us still in uncertain times we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Wood and Craft Fair for 2020. Usually at this time of year we would be well underway with the organisation of this event but have had to pause this as we focus on essential conservation and critical, compliance tasks as well as how we re-open with a smaller team and manage our resources for the future.

We appreciate, for many of you, the Wood and Craft Fair is a big date in your diaries and know many of you will share our disappointment. However, we also hope you understand why we have had to make the decision. We have informed all our stall holders, entertainers and demonstrators of our decision. 

We will share future information on our 2021 programme via the website

The Wood Fair wouldn't be possible without the hard work of our Ranger team - milling, felling and an annual programme of wood management to ensure the best variety of wood for selling, ensuring it is sustainably managed. Read our outdoor blogs below to find out all of the work our Ranger team to throughout the year.
