THE OAK FAIR 24th - 25th AUGUST 2019

Nick White is  pleased to announce that we have been offered stand space at The Oak Fair in Dorset over the August bank holiday weekend.  Saturday August 24th to Sunday August 25th.  10.00 a.m.  to 5.00 p.m.

This is an excellent show, very much in the TATHS line of interests.  It does overlap with the Great Dorset Steam Fair, but our stand there is run by Ralph Griffin, and we will have time to visit both events.


The Oak Fair is at the Stock Gaylard Estate near Sturminster Newton.  This may be a bit far for some of you, but I encourage you pay a visit.  Some of you are already familiar with the event.

Nick proposes to do something very similar to the TATHS displays at Westonbirt, and am therefore appealing for volunteers to help on our stand.  We will need at least four people each day to give a chance for a look around.  Paper Hats, spill planes, shave horse work and any other ideas welcome.

There are several tool dealers attending – Mike Wingrove, Tony Murland, Harry Beaves, Tools For Self Reliance, and other interesting crafts and trades.  Good food is available too.

Please put these dates in your diary NOW.  More information will follow when I have it.
