After holding the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS British Championship at the first ever BBC Countryfile Live event in 2016, we are really excited to be taking the STIHL Stage back to Blenheim Palace again this year.
The magnificent surroundings of the Palace parkland are once again hosting the live version of BBC’s Countryfile programme and we have planned a packed schedule to keep the crowds entertained. Proving a great draw last year were Treevolution, who wowed audiences with their chainsaw carvings both on-stage and off-stage. We will be auctioning the results of their handiwork for STIHL’s chosen charity for 2017, Surrey Young Carers, so you will even get the chance to own one of these unique creations.
For the gardening enthusiasts amongst you, make sure you take note of the times for our on-stage talks from Jane Moore, head gardener of The Bath Priory Hotel and former RHS Chelsea Flower Show award-winner. Jane will be sharing her gardening knowledge and you can even submit questions in advance for her to answer at the show; just tweet us at STIHL GB (@stihl_gb) with the hashtag #askjane!
Elsewhere on our stand, STIHL & VIKING experts will be demonstrating our lightweight and cordless products and sharing their expertise, including the basics of chainsaw maintenance, plus the innovative VIKING iMow robotic mower will be in action throughout the show so you can find out how iMow could transform your lawn.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, you can find out more about the history of STIHL’s chainsaws and visit the STIHL shop selling TIMBERSPORTS merchandise at special show prices.
But of course, the highlight of the show will be STIHL TIMBERSPORTS – check out the schedule for details of what’s on when, but you can be sure that whichever part of the TIMBERPORTS action you get to see, you will be guaranteed a thrilling show!
