Events in the Great Hall and Tithe Barn
Events at Postlip
We run events in the Great Hall and Tithe Barn to share Postlip and make connections with the local community, as well as to help pay for the maintenance of our historic buildings. Many people enjoy our concerts, comedy, story-telling, music and drama.
If you'd like to be on the mailing list or want to suggest an event then please email us or write to Postlip Society, Postlip Hall, Winchcombe, Cheltenham, GL54 5AQ.
For the last few years we have been programming events to take place by the fireside in the Great Hall during the colder months. A few recent events include: The Devil's Violin Company performing their blend of live music and spoken word to bring to life their new show "Forbidden Door"; a very moving play titled State of Grace by Postlip's own Reckless Theatre Company, a fantastic performance by renowned Orkney folk duo The Wrigley Sisters; and the Garlic Theatre's delightful puppet show for children of all ages "There's a Monster in My Piano".
In the past we have hosted Cromwellian banquets, held a butterfly festival, exhibited tribal rugs, held a 2CV race, and filled the grounds with sculpture – Postlip is pretty versatile. We are always open to new ideas and opportunities which appeal to us and/or have the promise of raising money to help maintain and restore the house and Tithe Barn. The woods and grounds are regularly used, both recreationally and educationally, by local school parties and organisations such as the Scouts and Forest School.
We hire out our beautiful Tithe Barn for weddings four times a year and the Great Hall for parties, exhibitions, private concerts and other occasions. Please see our Hiring the Barn page or contact Heather for more information.
