Learn about traditional woodland crafts and enjoy an immersive day out in the woods at the Surrey Hills Wood Fair 2022.


Held from 10am to 5pm on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September, the 12th annual Surrey Hills Wood Fair will take place at Fish Pond Copse in Cranleigh and is an exciting and educational day out for the whole family. Brimming with traditional rural charm, enjoy woodland-based activities and demonstrations, take part in interactive activities and browse handmade wood-crafted products.


Take a walk through the woods and see wood crafting, learn fire making or knife skills, listen to storytelling and be inspired by hedge making and craft activities. Organised by Community Interest Company, Surrey Hills Enterprises, the alfresco event will cover a host of countryside pursuits, with lots to get involved with, including tree climbing, axe throwing, archery, forest bathing, digger driving and saw mill demos. Children will especially love the shire horse and wagon rides, giant board games, bug hunting and zip wire, with lots to keep family members, big and small, entertained.


The perfect early autumn day out in a magnificent setting with easy access from Cranleigh, spend time in the fresh air in the company of family and friends at the Surrey Hills Wood Fair, get amongst the trees and celebrate the beauty of the woodlands of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Smell the wood smoke, discover the versatility of wood as a material and see master craftspeople in action.


There will be beautiful woodland products from local artisans available to browse, buy and take home, as well as a delicious selection of Surrey Hills’ food and drink on offer from local producers. From sustainably made beer, local rum or gin, to freshly ground coffee, tempting ice cream and handmade chocolate or fudge, there will be a wide array of locally made options including African stews, healthy seasonal dishes, indulgent waffles and much more.
