Carols in the Barn
Winterbourne Medieval Barn
Get in the festive spirit! Enjoy Christmas sketches, poems and readings by members of St Michael’s Church, and join in with well-known carols. Suitable for all ages. The medieval barn makes a very atmospheric setting for re-telling the old Christmas story.
Doors open at 2.15pm so that visitors can enjoy mulled wine and mince pies before the Carols, and be entertained with live festive music from The Bristol Waites. Dress warmly - the Barn is a medieval agricultural building with minimal heating! In places the ground is uneven, so please wear suitable footwear.
Tickets £5 (£1 for children under 16) include a cup of mulled wine or juice and a mince pie. Additional drinks and festive treats will be available from the bar. Buy tickets in advance via the Barn website. NB. When you book, choose either the afternoon or the evening performance, starting at either 3pm or 6pm.
This is a 'Ride and Stride' event. Parking at the Barn is reserved for people with mobility problems (contact us to reserve a place). No parking is allowed on Church Lane as this blocks the local traffic flow. Plenty of parking is available at Winterbourne Academy on the High Street for £1 per car. From there it is a gentle 10-15 minute walk down Church Lane to the Barn (approx. 850m). Or you can walk down Beacon Lane, which has streetlights, and then along a shorter section of Church Lane. A torch is useful for walking along Church Lane after dark. There is plenty of free bicycle parking at the Barn.
If you absolutely have to drop people off nearer the Barn or church, please only enter Church Lane from Beacon Lane and exit onto the High Street (ie. one way system) to ensure road safety and avoid congestion, and be aware that there will be pedestrians and cyclists in the road.
