The Association of Pole Lathe Turners and Green Woodworkers hold their annual Bodger's Ball and AGM during the second weekend of May each year. 

It really is an event everyone looks forward to and the numbers attending seem to grow every year.  Lots of pole lathes of course, of every conceivable design, a tool auction, chair and spoon competitions and the infamous Log-to-Leg races.

A good place to see  a WOODSMITH in its natural habitat

We would not miss it, it's worth the £15 APT membership fee just to take part.
