Fangfest Festival of Practical Arts 2012

Fangfest Festival of Practical Arts 2012

We had an absolutely fantastic Fangfest this year, with numbers of visitors higher than ever.  Everyone was delighted to see Bigger Bertie standing proud in The Rocking Horse Shop yard. 

We had chain saw carvers demonstrating their skills.

Traditional fun fair rides for the children and lots of activities for them to get involved in.

A wonderful selection of classic cars, trucks and even miniature Lorry's.

The children could have their face painted and even make their own hobby horses.

Graham & Sue Harker demonstrated Rocking Horse Making & Wood Turning.

The marquee was overflowing with craft people demonstrating their traditional crafts.  We had spinning, weaving, wood turning, Yorkshire button making and all sorts of wonderful crafts that we hardly see anymore.  It really was a truly British day out.  If you want to see more pictures please see our facebook page.
