‘Shed-fest’ is Denbigh Men’s Shed’s own annual event – held in the beautiful grounds at Trefeirian, in Denbigh. It was first thought up by Project Director, Nathan Sarea – and Committee Chairman, Ian Williams, in July 2015.

This (initially !) unique event has now been adopted by the UK Men’s Shed Association – and its success has paved the way for the other Men’s Sheds events now beginning to happen, around the country – and abroad……

We created it with the aim of bringing together as many Men’s Sheds and related 3rd Sector and partner organisations, as possible – for an uplifting day of togetherness, sharing, networking and fun !

This is Denbigh Men’s Shed’s ethos – “…Meeting the Friends you never knew you had…” in action.

Its a time of celebration – and to reward some of the hard work our members have put in to running Denbigh Men’s Shed, each year.

A time to keep everyone up-to-date with all the latest news, developments and future plans……

…And for music and entertainment, from local groups – like the lovely Veil Singers ladies’ choir, who graced us with a wonderful performance at Shed-fest 2016.

We invite guest-speakers up from other Sheds – to tell us about their way of doing things – and to talk about their success stories and challenges…..

It is a chance for our members – and others organisations – to showcase some of their own work – like Denbigh Men’s Shed’s Tristan Jones and Stephen Hession’s beautiful turned wood-crafts, pictured here.

We support local charities, budding entrepreneurs and new initiatives in having their own stalls…
