The Axemen return to the Oak Fair

Friday 8 February 2013

Dorset's most celebrated and longest running lumberjack display team, Adam's Axemen from Bere Regis, Dorset have been secured to wow crowds at this year's Stock Gaylard Oak Fair with their toe curling displays of axe and saw wielding skills. The team will return to the Oak Fair at the Stock Gaylard Estate near Sturminster Newton, Dorset on Saturday 24 August.

Reg Adams, founder of Adam's Axemen says: "We are delighted to be returning to the Oak Fair this year. We have entertained crowds around the world, from Australia to Canada, but there is nothing more exciting than performing in front of a home crowd. The Oak Fair is a wonderful event, celebrating traditional skills which we want to keep alive."

Andrew Langmead founder and organiser of the Oak Fair says; "Adam's Axemen are a fantastic addition to this year's Oak Fair line up. Our aim is to provide the whole family with a great day out exploring the countryside, where children can climb trees, make scarecrows and run around in a safe environment, at the same time as learning about and appreciating the importance of the countryside, conservation and woodcraft."

Other attractions this year include falconry displays and demonstrations of traditional logging techniques from the Heavy Horse Loggers. There will also be charcoal drawing and circus skills workshops, trailer rides around the famous deer park and many interactive exhibitions.
