Nailsea Tithe Barn Trust @ The Tithe Barn


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.

Film@ The Tithe Barn


If you've not been to a film at the Tithe Barn we hope you will come along soon to see just what a great experience it is.  We have full screen, professional quality projection and sound.  We also set out tables and chairs for a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy the evening.  Visit our bar before the film and take a glass of wine or beer or soft drinks into the hall and sit back and relax!  Click on Events to see the films that are coming up in the next few months.

Friends of the Tithe Barn


The Friends of the Tithe Barn are people who love the Tithe Barn!  Many of the them were involved in the very early stages when the fight to save the Tithe Barn from destruction first began.  Now the group enjoys special events at the Tithe Barn - like the recent Christmas tea party and film.  They also enjoy  trips during the year and these have included visiting the BBC studios in Bristol;  a visit to Yeo Valley gardens and a pleasant cruise on a horse drawn canal barge.
