Nailsea Tithe Barn dates from 1480 and with Holy Trinity Church is part of Nailsea’s historic heart. A school for over 200 years, it is now fully restored to its medieval origins. The vaulted ceiling, stonework and owl & putlog holes are beautiful features along with the modern facilities you need.
First of all everyone at the Tithe Barn Trust would like to thank all of you who have supported our programme of events at the Tithe Barn during the last season. On the positive side we were able to put on all of our planned events bar one film, which we'll probably carry over to the next season. Thank you all for your positive feedback and for your enthusiasm and support
The Tithe Barn events team is still working on the programme for the new season, albeit tentatively, but we can remain hopeful and if the situation improves then the new season will start in September but you'll have to keep watching local media and checking on our website for details.
We also plan to offer you the chance to see and hear once again from performers who have visited us in past seasons and give you some previews of what we have to offer whenever we are able to open up the Tithe Barn once more. So keep visiting our website for some great video performances.
Finally all of us at the Tithe Barn Trust send best wishes that you and your families will keep safe and that we'll see you later in the year.
Dr Jo Edwards, the Chair of the Trust, has written a piece about Hannah More. As well as a fervent educationist, Hannah More was involved in a number of social movements of her day, including anti-slavery campaigns. Find out more about this fascinating woman by going to the History page
Some musical treats await you! For Ben Holder fans; Ben and his trio have produced their own 'Covid Concert'. Recorded in the garden, it's a great tonic to lift the spirits and to bring back memories of the great evenings they have given us at the Tithe Barn. It's a pretty full programme so I should pour yourself a drink and sit back and enjoy some lively Ben Holder jazz!
If you came along to our very special evening with singers Charlotte Mobbs and Chloe Wedlake together with Gill Atkinson's Cantiamo choir, there is a special little treat for you too. Charlotte and Chloe are both members of the prestigious Harry Christopher's choir 'The Sixteen'. They too have been producing some special pieces within the restraints of lockdown. Look out for Charlotte!
You can find both performances by clicking on 'Events'.
