Major Oak Woodland Festival

June 8 - June 9

Oak Tree in Newark And Sherwood

The bodgers’ are back beneath the boughs in Birklands. Brilliant!

We know how much the landscape of Sherwood Forest is loved by everyone, for many reasons, and over the course of the year we want to explore these reasons. Together with you.

The ‘Major Oak Woodland Festival’ celebrates Britain’s greatest heart of oak. We delve into its history of traditional woodland crafts, explore how it has been a productive woodland and salutes its communities past and present.

The Green Man brings the spirit of Sherwood to life as he shares his tales in leafy glades. He summons the imps and fairies of these majestic woods and rallies the bushcrafters, the bodgers and the bees whilst bonding with Hill Holts, Hacketts and Wiffs. How wondrous, the world of the Green Man.

The festival supports local businesses and craftsmen and women, and we hope we can entertain you as much as we enthuse you about how special Sherwood Forest has been for centuries, and will be for many more to come. This year we embark on a different layout as we include the events field, so we hope that you’ll be as enthralled and entertained as you have for many years.

Whether you love local crafts, are a woodland wanderer or want an enjoyable family day out, this is the experience you’re looking for.

Watch demonstrations, talk to craftspeople, love Sherwood.
