Late Night Christmas Shopping

tithebarn-workshops-late-night-christmas-shopping

This year the Tithebarn Workshops and the Granary are getting together and will be opening for two evenings of late night shopping for their customers.

The first night on Tuesday 28th November is to coincide with the Christmas lights being switched on in town, so you will be able to enjoy the delights offered in the centre and also down here at Barton Farm all on one evening.

The second is on Sunday 17th December when we will be joined by members of the Bradford on Avon Preservation Trust and the public for a sing around the Christmas tree outside the Tithe Barn.  This beautiful event was very well attended for its first year last Christmas and good crowds are expected again this time around.

We will be offering Xmas nibbles and drinks for you to enjoy while you browse and the range of festive products and gift ideas at the Workshops and Granary will certainly tick a few people off your Christmas pressie lists!

If you would like any further information please feel free to contact us at any time and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Barking Mad!

Well, we had a whole raft of wood related puns lined up for why the kids park was closed behind us here at the Tithebarn Workshops.  And now, this morning, a large Council truck load of wood chips arrived to sort the problem out!

Apparently, there was not enough coverage of bark should anyone fall off the swings etc. As you can imagine there’s been quite a bit of… ‘It wasn’t like that it my day’ being muttered around here!

Anyway, things are all good again and we won’t be losing any business now due to the closure… see you soon.

Summer Floating Market

We would just like to bring your attention to this weekend’s Summer Floating Market taking place on the Kennet & Avon Canal near us here at the Tithebarn Workshops, on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July…

Now in its second year the Kennet and Avon Canal Floating Market is an event not to be missed. Boats and stalls selling goods made aboard from handicrafts to food to brass and woodwork. Entertainment from the canal community’s wide range of talented musicians and bands. Facepainting and workshops in juggling, ropework and shantys. Learn to play the spoons! Visit the Floating Salon for a pamper.

The market is open from 10am to 6pm both days and we hope to see everybody down in the area for a great time.

RHS South West in Bloom

The perfect day for travelling in style…

Bradford has been entered into this years Preece Cup category of the RHS South West in Bloom competition.  The Town put on this beautiful carriage to show judge Tony Moore and Mayor David Garwood around the area and spent time down at the Tithebarn Workshops this morning as part of the tour.

Surely with a welcome like this we stand a good chance of winning the competition?!

A Successful Day

A big thank you to everyone who joined us down at the Bradford on Avon Street Market in Westbury Gardens yesterday…

The weather helped to turn this into a very successful day for the Tithebarn Workshops and we got to meet plenty of existing and prospective customers.  We managed to dish out over 2 dozen of Mel’s delicious scones, which went down extremely well!

We were even right next to the band that struck up in the afternoon, adding to the great atmosphere in the gardens.

We do hope to see many of the new faces down here at the Workshops soon and look forward to next years event.

Bradford on Avon Street Market

We’re all looking forward to attending this years Street Market in Westbury Gardens this Saturday 1st July.  Last year’s event was a great success and it was lovely to meet so many new people.  We were slightly surprised to discover the number of native Bradfordians who had never been down to the Tithebarn Workshops… but we did put them straight!

We will be bringing down a selection of the work produced from each of the units at the Workshops, which will be available to purchase and then, of course, you will be able to partake in one of Mel’s famous scones while you browse the stand!

We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend and hope for the same weather as last year.

We’d also just like to say a big thank you to John Cox for his usual organisational skills in putting on what is easily the best event of it’s kind on the Bradford calendar.

Losing our Cherries!

Oh… come on… grow up!!

There’s a huge crop of cherries on the trees down at the Tithebarn Workshops, but they’re going fast thanks to the birds in the garden.  Slightly sour again this year but great if you like making preserves!

Also running out fast are the cherry necklace sets at SerenArts Gallery (note the not so subtle marketing link!!)…

Why not pop down to the Workshops soon for a chance to see both!

Romeo & Juliet in the Tithe Barn

Romeo & Juliet in the Tithe Barn, Bradford on Avon

The Bradfordians will be putting on a performance of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet at the Tithe Barn, Bradford on Avon from Wednesday 28th June to Saturday 1st July.

What a perfect setting for this play and we hope to see the crowds down here next week. Maybe pop down a little earlier and have a little browse around the Tithebarn Workshops?

Tickets can be obtained via the Bradfordian’s website.

We would like to wish all those involved all the best…. break a leg!
