Barn Events

The Trust and its supporters organise several events and activities throughout each year to give visitors the opportunity to explore and learn about the barn and its grounds and to raise funds towards the regeneration project. The Orchard Harvest Day and Heritage Open Days are established annual events and now the revival last year of the Winterbourne Fair under the name, Medieval Fayre, is joining them.

Other activities that change from year to year include craft workshops, concerts (sometimes at other venues) and talks by heritage experts with plans to widen this offering very soon.

Please come along to our events in the year and help us celebrate and enjoy using this wonderful piece of our heritage.


Events at the Barn - 2015 :


Lost property


After the last event, Carols in the Barn, a few personal items were left on site. Those who came to the carols and may have left possessions behind are welcome to get in touch through the ‘Contacts’ page and leave a description of the lost article.




Events at the Barn - 2016 :



Saturday 27 February 2016 - Apple Grafting Workshop - 10am - 4pm


Apple Grafting Workshop

Ever wondered why we graft? Do you have an old favourite that you wish to propagate? Or simply want to acquire this skill? Come and attend this workshop run by Ben Raskin of the Soil Association and find out how to graft and take away three grafts that you make on the day.

We will provide some common varieties for grafting. If you have a favourite that you wish to propagate then bring your own wood to graft. If you know of a particular variety that you wish to propagate, but do not have wood, please let us know and we will attempt to procure some wood (£1 extra on the day). The only equipment you will need will be a very sharp knife, e.g. a Stanley Knife.

This would make a very suitable present.

Cost £35 in advance plus £5 on the day for materials.

The workshop is limited to 8. If demand is sufficient, it may be repeated the following weekend.

To book, please download the booking form here and return as indicated. For enquiries, please telephone 0117 957 4921
