Our annual Orchard Harvest Day is back!
Visit the amazing Winterbourne Medieval Barn for a fun day out for all the family.

Celebrate the Great British Orchard and visit the amazing Winterbourne Medieval Barn for a fun day out for all the family. 

Enjoy entertainment from Terry Moules ferret-racing, 5678 School of Dance, Winterbourne Down Border Morris Dancers, Same Same but Different Puppeteers and live music from Bygonz wandering minstrels. 

New for 2024!
Live music from Piratitude – Bristol’s best (or at least silliest) Pirate-themed raucous singalong folk-rock and sea shanty band. Fresh from Glastonbury Festival! Take a sneak peak here: https://www.piratitude.com/home and on their Facebook page.

We’ll have a variety of artisan crafts traders and stalls as well as high quality food and drink all day. 

For our younger visitors there will be competitions, face painting and a pocket money stall.

St Michael’s Church (next door) will also be open for visitors.

Pre book tickets now! £5 adults, £1 children. A great day out with something for all ages!

Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome. Dogs remain the responsibility of the owner within the grounds of the Barn. There is plenty of bicycle parking on site for those arriving on two wheels.

Please note there is no car parking onsite or in Church Lane for this event (with the exception of blue badge holders, contact us to reserve a space if needed). We’ll be operating a free park and ride from Winterbourne Academy (BS36 1JL) with a shuttle bus to and from the Barn site throughout the day. Both the car park and the shuttle bus are free! Just park up and see our steward for the next bus.

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

If you wish to avoid the online booking fee then please contact the office to arrange a time to come and book in person.
