Commons Fair 2017 (with the Big Draw at Meersbrook Park)
Sunday, September 10th, 2017
12:15 PM
If you go down to the woods on the 10th September from midday you're sure of a big suprise! In the bottom meadow of the three plaeaus of Gleadless Valley woods you'll find a celebration of hertiage crafts, local music, real ale and an appreciation for this beautiful area. Free to attend and open to all, the fair will feature opportunities to try your hand at woodworking, blacksmithing, spinning and more - keep your eyes peeled for more info as some activities will require booking in advance but thanks to funding from the National Lottery they will be free! We're also working with the Big Draw at Meersbrook Park on the same day and have mapped a histprical round walk between the two for your happy strolling - watch out for the maps coming soon. Enter via footpaths from Cat Lane (S8 9JQ) and Bankwood Close (S14 1LW) - there will be signs on the day. Will Ferraby will be joining us all afternoon for drop in wood carving, come and have a go!
