A festive story

We want to share a little festive spirit this December. So click on the link below to listen to Kimberley, Tithe Barn Trust volunteer, reading ‘Fitz and Will: The Cambridge Cats: The Christmas adventure’ by Laura Robson Brown.

Beloved by children far and wide, the ‘Fitz and Will’ books first appeared in 2014 and now run to no less than four adventures. You can watch Kimberley as she reads the story in the atmospheric Landbeach Tithe Barn via this link:

Carols at the Barn

Carols at the Tithe Barn was the perfect way to start our festive season, so thank you to everyone for making this event so special. Visitors were able to escape the commercialisation of Christmas and sang classic carols such as Silent Night and Away in the Manger.

Of course we have to thank our volunteers too. Gemma O’Shea, Volunteer Chair of Trustees, says “We’re so lucky to have such dedicated volunteers who willingly give their time. As the event was free to everyone and we’re a small charity working with a tiny budget we have to be really resourceful. Maggie, one of our fabulous volunteers, used lots of foliage with holly and ivy foraged from the garden to create some traditional hand tied arrangements to hang around the unique timber frame Tithe Barn. Our thanks have to go to Tesco Milton also for donating mulled wine and mince pies for the event.
