Taths logoTools and Trades History Society


TATHS has a presence at several open air events every year, plus its own annual conference and more local events held by members and regional groups.  This section of the site advertises tools related events for the coming year and reports of those we have attended recently. Naturally, 2020 has been a poor year for shows and fairs but we hope to come back with a strong turnout in 2021.

The Calendar is intended to advertise tool related events across the country so if you know of something happening which may be of interest to members, please drop an email to the webmaster or one of the Committee and they will put it up for you.
