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.
If you’re looking for something to do in Bradford on Avon today, why not pop down and meet the new owners of the Granary in the Barton Farm Country Park. A big welcome from everyone here at the Tithebarn Workshops.
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.
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!
Lisi Ashbridge from The Corner Gallery (Unit 5, Tithebarn Workshops) is taking part in an upcoming exhibition…
Making a Mark is an exhibition celebrating craftsmanship. At the Private View on Saturday 13 May (11 – 5) the Lettering and Commemorative Arts Trust in Snape will have a display and letter carvers Ayako Furuno, Lisi Ashbridge and Thomas Sargeant will demonstrate their craft. The exhibition will be opened at 12 by Sarah Harrison, CEO of the Lettering Arts Trust. Do come – and learn more about the ancient skill of inscribing beautiful letters on stone and slate, and its relevance today.
The title of the exhibition embraces all the artists who show their fine work at The Garden Gallery. If you have not received an invitation and would like one please get in touch. The exhibition will run from 13 May – 8 July on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 11 – 5, or by arrangement.
Wishing all the customers of the Tithebarn Workshops a very Happy Easter from everyone here.
Have a lovely weekend and see you all 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!
For those who have followed the Tithebarn Workshops blog over the years you’ll remember our resident ducks, George and Mildred, who come to visit at this time of year…
Last year they failed to put in an appearance, but they’re back today and enjoying a hearty breakfast of bird seed all washed down with water from the dog bowls! Surely this is a sign that summer is well on its way?!
