The Sandringham Food, Craft & Wood Fair: April 30th – May 2nd

If there can ever be any pluses with Covid then combining the Sandringham Food Festival with the Craft & Wood Fair to provide one bumper event is it. The two events have been blended seamlessly into a superb event that they’ve decided to run it again this year. In the Food Festival they will be welcoming back favourite chefs Levi Roots and Phil Vickery to the Chefs Stage.

They will be supported by several other chefs over the weekend demonstrating a wide range of culinary delights. Into the Food Halls and guests will find a large array of food and drink for their appreciation, from both local and regional and national producers. The Piazza is the central hub of the festival, that special area where show visitors come together to eat and drink, whilst soaking up the atmosphere and relaxing to live jazz & folk music, and perhaps the murmuring antics of the Thameside Mummers.

There is a wide range of Street Food on offer from many different cultures and an equally wide range of beverages to quench your thirst. Moving around the show guests will come to the Craft & Wood exhibitors, demonstrators and competitors. The festival hosts nationally selected Artists, Designers & Craftsmen exhibiting and demonstrating and selling their crafts & skills in the main Craft Pavilions.

Scattered around them are lots of rural skills and demonstrations, coppice crafts, corn dollies, besom brooms and vintage wood working machinery including steam rack saw planking demonstrations. The show again has The Sandringham Cup, a large Chainsaw Competition with some of the UKs top carvers competing. At the end of the competition these exquisite sculptures are sold by auction. After a successful first year the BLSA are returning with their lumberjack sports competitions providing an exciting and extremely competitive mix of tree climbing, speed chopping and sawing, all against the clock.

The Sandringham Food, Craft & Wood Festival is to be held on Saturday, Sunday & Monday April 30th, May 1st and 2nd and tickets can be be booked online at or ring 01283 820 548.
