We will NOT have a beer tent on the field however the Bowling club will be open in the afternoon for refreshments
This new Chainsaw Carving event in the North of North Ayrshire is now entering it's 3rd year and will hopefully take place again in the Manse Field Beith.
Set up will be on the Friday evening when most of the carvers arrive.
Public admittance using the Glebe Road entrance or beside the pedestrian gate at the Bowling Club Boghead will be from 10am till finish at around 5pm.
When entering the field you will be issued with a wrist band, likewise, the children. This will allow you to come and go into the field as many times as you want. This avoids several entrance fees over the course of the day.
Our very first event in 2018 was a great success and we intend building on it for the future
We have 12 carvers and all the 24 or more carvings produced will be for sale in the auction at the end of the day, If any visitors would like to purchase one of the main or quick carvings, it is recommended that sufficient cash is available as the carvers have no facility of taking cash by card. There are several cash machines in the town.
The quick carving will take place after the main event, these items will also be for sale.
All profits will benefit local Community and projects and help us progress for the future.
This year we bought the angel which was carved by Damon Gorecki, this is intended to be installed on the triangle at the Paisley end of Beith in due course.
Food and soft drinks will be available all day from various vendors on the field and in the bowling club next door.
2020 sees the return of the now established Chainsaw Carving event in the Garnock Valley on Saturday 12th Sept. This fun and creative demonstration will provide an inspiring spectator event, there will also be community activities, family games and visitors can enjoy some of the locally sourced produce and food stalls.
Currently there are 12 international and award winning chainsaw carvers confirmed to take part in the 3rd Garnock Valley Carves Carving event, showcasing a spectacular piece of performance art demonstrating astonishing skill and talent from across the globe using mainly chainsaws.
Besides the event itself, we have a wide variety of interactive stalls and attractions for all ages to enjoy and many opportunities to feel inspired and learn some new skills.
This year we will have the World Champion axe throwers Braveheart Axe Throwing demonstrating and teaching their skills for a modest sum.
A cross section of community groups from the Garnock Valley will have activities and stalls for participants to interact with as well as face painting, a children’s tent, Story telling, wood carving workshops, outdoors woodland crafts and games and pony rides.
If you would like a stall, please get in touch soon. Find the booking form in the "more" section.
We are set to run the event in successive years, helping us make a real, sustainable impact to our local area.
