The Bushcraft Show
In Beehive Farm Woodland Lakes, Rosliston, Derbyshire this weekend.
The Bushcraft Show is set to enthrall and entertain families and individuals of all ages in a celebration of all things bushcraft over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Visitors are travelling from around the world to attend the most exciting, entertaining and educational bushcraft event of the year.
The show provides an all-inclusive experience that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world… Why? We have, all the way from Australia – Major Les Hiddins, aka the ‘Bush Tucker Man‘ coming to share his love of the Australian bush and his skills and expertise.
John ‘Lofty‘ Wiseman, author of The SAS Survival Handbook, says he wouldn’t miss coming to The Bushcraft Show for the fifth year running! Wolves are coming to The Bushcraft Show 2015 and you could join a wolf hybrid pack, learn evolution, physiology, social structure, communication and conservation of the wolf, intricacy of social ranking and the subtle art of canine communication on a magical walk through the woodlands as part of the pack.
We also have one of the world’s most renowned and highly respected explorers, Colonel John Blashford-Snell OBE, former British Army Officer, explorer and author coming along to share his adventures and expedition advice.
There’s Open Canoeing, Archery, Axe Throwing, Campfire Cookery, Tracking, Firelighting, Military Survival Skills and Leatherwork. And, that’s not all… Whittling Sessions, Campfire Music, Wilderness First Aid, Fishing, Rifle Shooting, Spoon Carving, Woodland Crafts and so much more! Add to this delicious locally sourced food, local ales, evening entertainment in the Tipis and an evening campfire surrounded by newfound friends and you are just beginning to feel what The Bushcraft Show has to offer.
Steve Backshall, Adventurer & Natural History TV Presenter, attended the show last year and said, «It’s been tremendous fun… here at this amazing show, it’s about rediscovering very old ways of interacting with the outdoors… We’ve got people around us now practicing traditional crafts that might completely disappear.»
