Held in the month of Ember in the woodworking and furniture-making town of Fratchwood, this festival honours not only the principal trade of the locality, it is completely in keeping with the cleansing, tidying and purifying aspects of Ember, in that a years' worth of accumulated useless offcuts, wood-shavings and sawdust may be piled into large bonfires and burnt in honour of Sweevo, God of lumber and timber.
