Orchard Harvest Day returns to Winterbourne Medieval Barn

WINTERBOURNE Medieval Barn's biggest event, Orchard Harvest Day, returns again this year after a three-year gap due to building work and covid.

It is a great day, celebrating the great British orchard and our rural environment.

There will be apple displays and tasting, artisan craft traders, morris dancers and ferret racing, as well as live music from Frampton Shantymen and Bygonz minstrels, at the event on October 10.

There will also be dance performances, stalls, kids' activities and games, all in and around the barn, plus food and drink from local providers.

Tickets can be bought online at the barn's website to avoid the queues on the gate.

There's no parking in Church Lane or on site, but Free parking at Winterbourne Academy and the Hunts Ground Road park and ride at Stoke Gifford, with a free shuttle bus running to and from the Barn all day. 

Other events at the barn this month include a climate change talk and panel discussion on October 5 at 7pm, run in conjunction with Winterbourne Environmental Group and EcoChurch, and a Halloween Special music night on October 29. 

Further details of all events, including tickets, visit www.winterbournebarn.org.uk.
