The Festival of Forgotten Skills is on again!
Join us this Sunday for our amazing festival. For those of you that weren’t here for our 2012 Festival it was a beautiful day of sharing skills ranging from candle making to rope making to cheese making. This year we have a whole new range of skills with even more people volunteering to share their knowledge…………thank you so much to everyone involved, the program looks absolutely incredible.
It is a day we encourage everyone to come out , bring your kids and find out out about how things used to be done. This year we are encouraging you to dress in the sprit of the day, bring a picnic, forget your mobile phones and relax into some old fashioned fun.
