The Fayre, organised by volunteers from the Learning Service at St Mary’s, hopes to attract families from Monmouthshire and the surrounding areas. Visitors will be able to explore the Medieval Tithe Barn and the historic Priory Church as well as browse the wide variety of stalls.
Stallholders from across the region will include: the Burren Bread Company, Naturally Created wooden boards, local brewers, Chantler Teas, Black Mountain Smokery and handmade pies. There will also be a variety of entertainment for the whole family, including a coin striker, bee keepers, representatives from National Parks Association and folk groups.
Our Learning Service volunteers will be dressing up in traditional Tudor costume, handmade using authentic techniques, and making peg dolls with the children. The ladies who worked on the Abergavenny Tapestry project will be on hand to demonstrate techniques in small workshops.
Tithe Barn Manager, Richard Morgan, says “the Medieval Fayre will be a first for St Mary’s Priory and promises to be a highlight of Monmouthshire’s calendar of events! We are enormously grateful to the support of our volunteers who have helped to make this possible and we look forward to a very successful and enjoyable day.”
