Tithe Barn celebrates Fen Edge Festival


More than 100 Fen Edge Festival goers stepped inside Landbeach’s Tithe Barn at the weekend.

Visitors were transported from the festival in Cottenham to the barn by a 1969 classic coach. They then enjoyed face-painting, storytelling, traditional games and introductory talks about the history of the Tithe Barn.

Gemma O’Shea, Tithe Barn Trust chairman, said: “Our thanks go to the Fen Edge Community Association for organising another successful festival, and the Tithe Barn Trust is excited to be one of the festival’s nominated causes for 2017.

“We have to say a huge thank you to Charles too for volunteering to take visitors to the Tithe Barn on his superb classic coach.”

The Fen Edge Festival is organised by the Fen Edge Community Association, a charity promoting and supporting clubs, groups and societies in Cottenham, Landbeach, Rampton, Waterbeach and Willingham.

The Tithe Barn Trust is a small charity and volunteer not-for profit group aiming to save and restore the timber frame Grade II Listed Tithe Barn for community use.
