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.

A Night of Jake Thackray


Remember Jake Thackray?  Jake was a singer-songwriter in the French tradition, hugely popular in the 60s and 70s, but whose songs were firmly rooted in the English character and language - funny, sad, tragic, rude.  In short - unique.

Jake sadly died aged 64 in 2002 but his songs live on through John Watterson (Fake Thackray).  John is the UK's foremost interpreter of the wonderful wordsmithery of Jake Thackray.  He has worked closely with the Thackray family to introduce new audiences to Jake's work.  The Tithe Barn presents A Night of Jake Thackray on Saturday 6th April at 8pm.  Tickets £10 on the door or book online.
