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 :


Sunday 4 October - Orchard Harvest Day - 11.00am - 4.00pm


Orchrd Harvest Day

Orchard Harvest Day at Winterbourne Medieval Barn will again provide the usual extravaganza for the whole family of all things apple, food and drink to consume on site or take away and time-honoured pursuits of yesteryear.

Key attractions will be cider making with cider for sale, ferret racing, falconry, archery and a working medieval kitchen.

In addition there will be displays of traditional crafts, an apple display with identification and cultivation knowledge on hand, animals including Matthew the ‘cider mill pony’, sales of produce from the Barn garden, Morris Dancers and children’s games.

Entrance £2 for adults, children under 16 free. Car parking will be available on a site next to the barn at £2 per vehicle, all proceeds going to the charity Paul’s Place.


Visitors coming by car and approaching the barn from the west along Beacon Lane should note that the diversion due to work on the M4 motorway bridge will not be in place on Sunday 4 October. Vehicles will be able to travel along Beacon Lane and then turn left up Church lane to access the barn.
