Blacksmiths Competitions | New Forest Show

What to see

Blacksmiths can be seen battling against the clock to demonstrate their wrought iron skills in live competitions to portray the various subjects laid out in the schedule.  These exciting competitions are very popular with visitors and are a real crowd-puller.

We have both static and live competitions at The Show, perfect for both amateur and professional Smiths.


Located next to the Pennyfarthing Homes West Ring, the Blacksmith section of the Show gives visitors the opportunity to watch Blacksmiths in action.
