THE National Trust at Ilam Park will be holding a free two-day Woodland Fair on Saturday and Sunday, May 10 and 11, between 11am to 4pm.

The free family event will give visitors the chance to have a go at a variety of woodland crafts.

They will be able to toast marshmallows, make a bird box, and go on a woodland trail, as well as watch demonstrations by local experts and crafts people.

National Trust Ranger for Ilam Park, Stuart Macpherson, said: "Visitors to this free event will be able to watch tree climbing, a chainsaw sculptor, George the heavy horse pulling timber, and have a go at wooden spoon carving and make a wooden stool.

"There will also be a BBQ and marshmallow toasting in the woods.

"It's a great time of year to explore Ilam Park with carpets of wild garlic lining the footpaths, lambs in the parkland and swallows in the natstableblock."

This is a free event, with small charges for some of the family activities.
