Future Events

It is only two months to this years OAK FAIR in Dorset. We have a stand again at this excellent small show.  Very much in line with TATHS interests.

Dates are Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th August, with set up on Friday afternoon.  Stock Gaylard estate, near Sturminster Newton.


I have several volunteer helpers committed, you know who you are, I hope.

We need a few more, and I would like to invite you to attend. Several of you volunteered last year, can you do so again for 2022?

Please drop me an email if you are able to help.  If you would like to demonstrate please indicate how much space you will need.

We have Bob Burgess making handles on the shave horse, Brian Mansfield pattern-making, and Tim Martin is bringing his ropewalk again; very popular last year.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly,


Nick White
