Doris does some damage…

While I was sunning myself in Gran Canaria storm Doris was doing her worst in the garden at the Tithebarn Workshops.  Luckily it was only one of the larger branches of our glorious cherry trees and it didn’t fall towards the galleries, so things could have been a lot worse…

On the plus side, all the spring flowers are now coming into bloom and the garden is starting to look it’s best again.

We hope to see you all down here soon.

Any Advertising is Good?

Well, to say we were a little disappointed would be an understatement.  After 4 and a half hours filming for Celebrity Carry on Barging, all we got was a 30 second scene of 3 celebrities chomping on some of Mel’s scones (extremely good as they are), whilst discussing how best to wash Nigel Havers smalls!!  You could just see the ghostly figure of Terry through the tearoom window and then they were off again along the canal.  Ah well, they do say any advertising is good advertising!

We’ll have to work on our acting skills a bit more if we’re to get the Tithebarn Workshops a starring role in the next bit of filming down here I guess!

Celebrity Carry on Barging at the Tithebarn Workshops?

Well it’s finally being aired and we’ve been trawling around trying to find a decent review for the new Channel 5 series Celebrity Carry on Barging…. without much success I’m afraid!  Shown at 8pm on Friday nights the show features the above celebs taking on the K & A canal and, with any luck, visiting us here at the Tithebarn Workshops for a bit of retail therapy.  There is, of course, a chance we may end up on the cutting room floor, but we’ll see what happens next week!

Well… we don’t care what the reviews say… we had a great day with them all down here and found them to be absolutely charming people.   Fingers crossed that we make the cut and good luck with the rest of the show!

Happy New Year

We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you had a good Christmas.  It’s all over again for another year and we’re back at it down at the Tithebarn Workshops and there can’t be anybody more pleased than this little fella….

Have you quite finished taking photos?!…

We hope to see everyone soon and to look forward an exciting 2017.

Kennet & Avon Canal Floating Market

Well it’s the Kennet & Avon Canal Floating Market today, and if the numbers of visitors to the Tithebarn Workshops are as a result of the event, then can we have a floating market every weekend please?!

We hope things are going as well for you all up their on the canal as they are down here, it looks great as usual.

Late Night Christmas Shopping

Just a little reminder that the Tithebarn Workshops first late night Christmas shopping evening is this Saturday (26th November – 5pm to 9pm).

The evening will be combined with the official opening of the new Corner Gallery (Unit 5) so they’ll be plenty going on and a great chance to pick up some special Christmas gifts.

We look forward to seeing you then.

‘Small is Beautiful’

tithebarn-workshops-in-the-guardian-newspaper

We were very excited when the Guardian Newspaper contacted us to say they were running a piece on the Tithebarn Workshops and could we please send some photographs of the shops and garden.

Now please don’t get us wrong… we are thrilled to be included in the article in today’s copy of the Travel supplement, but it does explain the title on the front page ‘Small is Beautiful’!!  Great for the Town though, to be promoted in this way and lets hope that we get lots of extra visitors to the area as a result.

Thank you very much to the Guardian for including our town.
