“We had a great time at the Wood Fair. There were no problems with access, no queuing and no issues parking. Everything was lovely and we ended our day with some very nice but very strong Cider!!”- (June 2022)

“I would just like to say how fantastic your wood fair was this weekend.  I came on Sunday, and camped on Saturday night (bit scary!), and the range of exhibitors and events were so interesting.  So many of the stallholders are such good people and a pleasure to talk to and learn from. It was also very good of you to run the event on my birthday – thanks very much!” – (June 2022)

“I just wanted to say what a fabulous family friendly event – so lovely to see so many ‘have a go things’ as well as interesting stalls and displays. Congratulations, we will be back next year. I also particularly enjoyed Wild Eyes music on Sunday – great vocals and playing.” –  (June 2022)

“The family had a good look round and commented on the relaxed feel of the show, with a good selection of exhibitors and plenty to see and do.” – (September 2021)

“I know the effort that goes into putting this type of show together, but then throw Covid into the mix and wow you did a good job. Again well done for a great show, all the best.” – (September 2021)

“Just thought I would let the dust settle after the Wood Fair, before dropping you a line. I came over on the Sunday for a few hours and, as usual, had a great time. For obvious reasons things seemed a bit smaller and more compact this year, however that didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the event.” – (September 2021)

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for putting on the Wood Fair again this year. We thought it was a fabulous event which far exceeded previous years in terms of footfall and traditional wood fair atmosphere. The Saturday evening entertainment was brilliant and it was good to see so many traders out enjoying it; we only wish we could have stayed out longer to enjoy the refreshments but we were shattered!” – (August 2021)

“Without exception, every visitor we spoke to at our stand said they were having a wonderful day and thought it was a great event. I’m sure the organisation of the Wood Fair is complex and time-consuming but it would be good to see it back again next year – and on the annual calendar!Without doubt West’s Wood Fair is our favourite event of the year so please keep us on your mailing list! Best wishes to you and your team.” – (August 2021)

“Fantastic day was had. Food vending great choice and beer tent. Evening entertainment was excellent….” – (August 2021)

“We’ve just had a really enjoyable afternoon at the Wood fair in East Dean. It’s always such a lovely event as it’s properly rural with craft and wood based stalls – many of them local – and not a double glazing tent in sight! “-(August 2021)

“Well done Pete. Your wood fair was the best so far. I had great time meeting people and enjoying the show and of course the beer. It was worth all your hard work. Looking forward to the next one.”- (January 2019)
