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.
