Sherwood Forest Arts and Crafts fair
Now, correct us if you want, but we don’t think there’s anything better to do on an autumnal afternoon than wrap up warm and run along country paths, jumping in puddles and crunching through leaves. One of the best places in Nottinghamshire to do this is our most famous forest, you know, the one that’s associated with that bloke in the tights.
For anyone that suddenly has the urge to head to Sherwood Forest for some frolics, why don’t you hang one over to their beautiful Arts and Craft centre, located in the former coach house and stables of nearby Edwinstowe Hall? This Sunday they’re holding an Arts and Craft Fair, for those of you that wish to treat yourself after a long walk, or get started on some Christmas shopping – don’t forget there are only three paydays to go until friends and family demand presents from you. Now that is a scary thought - lucky that entry is free.
There will be 13 stalls, featuring some beautiful and unique gifts, including bespoke rocking horses, which will make you the coolest parents/uncle/aunt around, sign making, jewellery and local produce, for keeping up your energy levels and you’re strolling around. In fact, it looks like there’s going to be something for everyone, and for all budgets, which is a bonus.
If thirteen stalls aren’t enough for you though, you can always check out the local craft studios, which showcase a variety of exciting bits and bobs; original art, hand-blown glass, gems and even - if you’re into it - civic war re-enactment paraphernalia. And who doesn’t want to own their own sword? Perfect for running around the forest with, though caution must be advised for when you return to the city centre.
The craft fair will be held on Sunday from 10am until 4pm
