herdwick sheep breeder helping at shearing demo 2015Over 100 volunteers, many of them from the Guilds and past visitors, help in the days leading up to the event and the two very busy days of Woolfest. From setting up the venue, to a shift on the door, to answering queries, to fetching essential teas and coffees, to sorting out fleeces, to playing music in the Square and much, much more - everyone's time and skills are VERY much appreciated.

We couldn't run Woolfest without you - THANK YOU!
