Winterbourne Medieval Barn

We have recently completed a major redevelopment project to conserve and enable new uses for the magnificent Grade II* listed 14th century barn and associated out buildings, ensuring long-term sustainability for this nationally significant heritage asset by placing it at the heart of the local community.

WMBT runs a mix of commercial and community events and workshops in the main Barn, West Barn and Cart Shed.

About you

You will be a motivated administrator with a keen eye for detail and a great understanding of what’s needed to plan and deliver events to a high standard. You will be an excellent communicator who is able to prioritise tasks and work effectively to deadlines. Ideally, you’ll have experience working with volunteers in a community focused organisation or heritage site.

About the role

You will report to the Business & Development Manager, but work largely independently and closely with the Events and Publicity Committee and Trustees. You’ll be responsible for making sure that events are booked, planned, and delivered successfully, meeting visitor satisfaction and budgetary targets. You’ll work with our dedicated volunteers to help achieve this, as well as external contractors, facilitators, and casual members of staff.

 

The closing date for applications is 12 noon Saturday 13 November 2021 and interviews will take place at Winterbourne Medieval Barn on Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 November 2021.

Day 4: The Egg Dance

It’s day 4 of our Medieval Movement Week and today it’s Egg Dance day. We’re taking inspiration from an old dancing game where eggs would be placed on the ground, and you would have to hop and dance around them without breaking any.

Send us any clips of you dancing along at home! events@winterbournebarn.org.uk

Day 3: Dance of the Wild Thing

Today’s dance is inspired by the tale of King Charles VI of France who entertained wedding guests by dressing up as a Wodewose (a wild man of the forest). Unfortunately, their costumes set on fire as they were dancing and the King had to be extinguished by a lady’s large skirt. We’re going a bit interpretive today…so let your inner wild thing out!

Medieval Movement Week!

Ever wanted to know what dance was like back in medieval times? Now’s your chance to find out as we move like medieval folk!

We’ll learn a section of dance each day before putting them together in a finale routine at the end of the week. Each day has a different theme, all inspired by medieval dances, or stories from the time. Today is day 1 and we’re learning a Carole, or circle dance!
