We recently heard of the impending departure of Daryl Jones from her position as Tourism and Events Officer for Bradford Town Council. She will be moving onwards and upwards to Chippenham Council at the end of this month. We at the Tithebarn Workshops would like to thank Daryl for all her hard work and endless enthusiasm towards the promotion of this town and in particular her inclusion of the Workshops in the events and activities.
You will be sorely missed Daryl and we would like to wish you all the very best in the future.
We look forward to meeting and working with the incoming Officer soon.
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.
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.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us down at the Bradford on Avon Street Market in Westbury Gardens yesterday…
A bit of folk for the Street Market folks!

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.
We know that Felix and Jackie have been keen to thank everyone for coming along to support the launch of Acoustic Guitar Innovation at the Tithebarn Workshops on Sunday. It was a fantastic turn out with over 100 visitors over the evening …
It was a great evening and we would like to add our thanks to all the people who enjoyed the music, wine and ambiance of the event. Felix had produced some truly stunning guitars that were on show and available to purchase, and they will remain so at the Corner Gallery from now. So, if you weren’t able to get to see the collection due to over crowding… please pop down any time!
A big thank you to everyone involved in putting on the launch evening and we look forward to seeing you all again at the Tithebarn Workshops soon.
SerenArts Gallery have just taken delivery of a fabulous new selection of new season linen clothing to add to their existing ranges…
A great collection of new designs and colours are available from their shop now, so pop down to the Tithebarn Workshops soon while stocks last!
The sun is out, the shops all have their new stock in, the blossom is just making an appearance, the flowers are in bloom, the Tearooms have got all their tables out and we’re ready for the new season at the Tithebarn Workshops.
We look forward to seeing our regular clientele as well as welcoming many new customers this 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.
We know… it’s been far too long since our last post! A poor excuse, but it has been very busy down here at the Tithebarn Workshops recently.
However, things are set to become even more hectic with the arrival of around 500 members of the English Civil War Society, for the biggest event in their history, here in Bradford on Avon next weekend (30th – 31st July). There are also expected to be over 7000 visitors to watch and enjoy the festivities as well.
Events will be taking place all around the Workshops with a full program in Barton Farm, Victory Field and other areas in Town.
So who ever your money is on to come out on top in the battles… why not pop in and see us for a cup of tea and some retail therapy?!
It’s that time of the year again and the Bradford on Avon Lions Club are putting on their fantastic annual Fun Day, in Victory Field and the surrounding area. It’s a great day out for the whole family and brings in a lot of new visitors to the Tithebarn Workshops, which is right next door.
We hope to see everyone down here, for what promises to be a rather rare sunny Bank Holiday Monday!
