It's hard to believe that it has been almost 12 months since Treefest last August and now we are only one week away from this year’s festival!

We have been busy marking out the Downs over the last 3 days, totalling just over 600m and getting it ready for when the exhibitors arrive next Friday to set up. If your driving past next Monday (19th) look out for our lovely festival flags out on the roadside!

Crowds at Treefest

This year we have 111 exhibitors booked in, and excitingly 38 new exhibitors joining us. Our regular exhibitors have been coming to us for years and tell us that this is their favourite event of the year. A big thank you to them for their continuous support.

Axe Men

Another exciting bit of news is that we have the Axe Men of Mid Wales joining Treefest 2013 and will be giving us two arena demonstrations each day. They are really popular so we are thrilled to have them at the festival this year!

Love Food Festival Logo

On the food front we have Love food Festival helping us to fill the Foodhall with delicious local producers and we have some fantastic things in store for you. Olives, Cheese, Fudge, Wine, Organic Meat, Cider, Sauces, Chutneys, Chocolate, Cake, and that is just some of what's on offer this year! Come and see the wonderful produce for yourself!

Exotic Tagine

We also have some new caterers this year! MDB Catering are back with their Hog Roast and we have baked potatoes, baguettes, Exotic Tagine, Big Pan Paella, Bath Organic Farm, Churros Garcia, Winstones Ice-Cream and Stroud Brewery. There is something for everybody!
