The UK Men's Shed Association are excited to announce that ShedFest is back.
Next week from 7-9 July between 10am - 3pm and in the evenings at 7pm we will be launching our Annual Shed Festival, 'ShedFest 2020' online.

ShedFest is an incredible opportunity to attend special workshops by some top notch guests! ShedFest has been held in Worcester for the last 2 years, making it hard for some to attend. This year the entire event will be hosted for FREE online.

Open to anyone, not just members of Men's Sheds
