Blacksmiths Competitions | New Forest Show

Located between the Food Hall and Old Time Farming Sections, the Blacksmith section of the Show gives visitors the opportunity to watch Blacksmiths in action.

Blacksmiths can be found 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 static and live competitions at the Show and any interested blacksmiths, whether amateur or professional can enter by downloading a schedule and sending the entry form to the Show Office –
