    We've a great line-up of interesting guest exhibitors and demonstrators, along with refreshments and chance for a catch-up with fellow wood enthusiasts. To ensure the day runs smoothly we've put together just a few information points that you may find helpful.

    If you're a first time visitor to British Hardwoods, our address and directions can be found on our contact page. There will be happy helpers (in high-vis jackets) directing you into our car park. Overspill car parks are available within the business park, these will be signposted and you will be directed to them if necessary.

    You'll be given an information leaflet on arrival which explains our "sale lot" system. If in any doubt at all please do ask, there'll be plenty of staff on hand to help you.

    Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the day on the mezzanine level above the timber shop. Nearby, Sam Conroy will be raising funds for his Tanzania Outlook Expedition and will be serving lovely home-made Chilli (meat and vegetarian options available). Toilets are located in both buildings, and there will be plenty of signs around to help you find your way.

    Please be aware that the sale applies to sawn timber in our Timber Shop and doesn’t include machined products (e.g. flooring, skirting, door linings etc.). Discounted prices are available on the Sale Day only.

    Our Open Days are always very well attended, and the sales/office team are likely to be fully occupied with the timber sale throughout the day. If you were hoping to visit our flooring showroom tomorrow, we would kindly suggest that you choose an alternative day, to ensure that we can devote our full attention to you. Likewise, if you are planning to collect an order from us on Saturday, you may find it easier to call before 9.00am.

    We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

  • Timber Sale and Open Day - Saturday 8th February

    Happy New Year to you all! After our lovely break at Christmas we are now well into the preparations for our upcoming Timber Shop Sale and Open Day. The show will be held on Saturday 8th February and promises to be the biggest and best yet.

    We're thrilled that the inspirational Chris Fisher "The Blind Woodturner" has managed to squeeze us in to his busy schedule and will be joining us on the day. Chris lost his sight in 2008 and took up woodturning. Chris now travels around the UK demonstrating his skills and inspiring others to show them that anything is possible.

    If you feel inspired by Chris, there will be local woodturning groups on hand giving demonstrations of their woodturning skills. They're a friendly group of people brought together by their combined love of wood - and would be very happy to chat and offer advice.

    There will also be plenty of craft makers stalls, pyrography demonstrations, woodworkers suppliesClassic Hand Tools and of course our very popular Timber Shop Sale.

    Refreshments will be available on the day, along with lovely homemade Chilli (veggie option available) served by Sam Conroy who is raising funds for his Tanzania Outlook Expedition Project.

    We'll be providing lots more information about the individual exhibitors over the next couple of weeks. So, sign up to our Newsletter or follow our Social Media channels for updates.
