Wychwood Forest Fair 2007

2nd September Sunday at Capps Lodge near Burford. Noon until 5pm

The original Forest Fair began in the late 18th Century and was held at Newhill Plain Cornbury but ceased in 1856 because of "drunkeness and debauchery"

The Friends of Wychwood revived the Fair and have been organising the Wychwood Forest Fair for the past seven years. This group is a charity run by volunteers and supports the Wychwood Project. The Fair is held annually in September at varying locations within the area of the former Royal Hunting Forest of Wychwood.

This year's fair will have over 150 stalls, covering conservation and community group activities and local businesses, with a fun fair, nature trail, Morris dancing, children's story teller, local food outlets, second hand books and an Arts and Crafts Tent.

There will also be displays of the Wychwood Project's work and by the Friends of Wychwood.

All profits from the Fair will be used by the Friends of Wychwood to help fund the Wychwood Project,which works with local people to restore habitats and create woodlands within the boundaries of the ancient Forest of Wychwood.

Admission £5.00 per person. Under 16s free. Parking free
