The Barn Bar will be open before and during this event serving a small selection of drinks and snacks. Cash and card payments accepted.
We operate a challenge 25 policy, so please bring ID with you.

Please note car parking for this event has changed. It is no longer at Winterbourne Academy.
Parking for this event will be at The Barn and a section of private land next door will be used for overflow parking. The private land has kindly been leant to us for this event only so we ask users to follow instructions of parking stewards, only park in designated areas and treat the space respectfully.

Accessible parking will still be in The Barn’s main car park as this is easier access to the main barn. To book accessible parking please email us on ceara.foley@winterbournebarn.org.uk  with your registration number, if you need a wheelchair accessible parking space and any accessible seating for the show and we can book this for you.

There is plenty of bicycle parking at The Barn for those arriving on two wheels and space for drop off / collection if you would like to arrange this.

Please do not park along church lane as this obstructs the road for other users and emergency vehicles.

The primary purpose of this event is to raise money for WMBT and to support conservation, management, maintenance and improvement of the WMBT site.
