Tudor Rose Woodturners

Woodworks At Daventry 2019

Friday 10th & Saturday 11th May 2019, 10am - 4pm at Daventry Leisure Centre NN11 4FP

Daventry is a small market town in the north-west corner of Northamptonshire. It is close to the M1 J18 and the A5. The leisure centre is in Lodge Road.

All parking is free in Daventry. On Friday the car parks close to the Leisure Centre will be full of employee vehicles. Visitors to Woodworks At Daventry are directed to a car park at the end of Eastern Way and we provide a free shuttle bus. If visitors prefer to walk it is less than a ten minute leisurely stroll. On Saturday there will be sufficient parking space close to the Leisure Centre. There are parking bays outside the centre for disabled badge holders.



There is an on-site cafe serving hot drinks and snacks. Daventry town centre is a two minute walk away with a wide variety of cafes and restaurants. In the main hall our local Women's Guild will be serving tea, coffee and fantastic cakes. It's worth coming just for the cake!

Club participation in our turning competitions creates a unique show atmosphere. Details of these competitions and our other attractions can be seen below.
