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 - 2013 :
December 14 and 15 - Carols in the Barn - 3.30pm
Our popular 'Carols in the Barn' will again take place on two afternoons this year with gates open from 3.30pm and carols beginning at 4pm. It provides a chance to sing some of our favourite carols interwoven with the Christmas story in the form of a nativity play.
Members of St Michael's Church provide the players and music and the barn makes a perfect setting for a traditional Christmas celebration.
Tickets, which include mulled wine, fruit juice and mince pies, are £2 for adults, £1 for children and can be obtained from Daisy’s Coffee Shop, Flaxpits Lane, Winterbourne from November.
