10am: Isolated/Shielded/Individual Shopping Available
The Art Barn, Thornbury

After 4pm and Sundays

From now until Christmas The Art Barn Thornbury is happy to open for people who want to remain isolated but yet still do a bit of shopping where you can actually see the items you want to buy rather than, 'hope for the best' by shopping online.

We sell not just Art but a variety of gifts including woodwork, re-cycled lamps, feltwork, sculptures, fused glass, pottery, mosaics, cards and Christmas cards and much, much more. Most artists will also take commissions.

We can make ourselves available after 4pm or on Sundays (when the shop is officially closed). You can shop on your own at your leisure. It is in fresh air as the door is always open (bring a warm coat).

Just contact us via the links below or phone 07792... Read more >>

TCT Christmas Carol Service Recording

Thornbury Churches Together are hoping to put together a Christmas Carol Service and want to organise some congregational carols recorded as live as possible.

They are looking into ways to video and record a group of up to 30 people from various churches singing 2 carols in the Baptist church. (presently that will be in the garden but will be dependent on COVID rules at the time).

The date they can do this is in the afternoon of Sunday November 15th (time to be decided); anybody wanting to be part of it would need to be available on that day.

People would have to book a place to come and sing by contacting Heather Staley by email below or on 07977 450950 to book a space. TCT are also looking for volunteer families with children to record... Read more >>

5.30pm: CANCELLED: Thornbury Christmas Lights Switch On
NatWest Bank, Thornbury

Thornbury Christmas Lights Association (TCLA) regrets to announce that there will be no Christmas Lights Switch-On this year. Due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, it creates an unjustifiable increased risk to our volunteer population. Additionally, a switch-on event would pose social distancing concerns and an unwarranted danger to the residents of Thornbury.

We do however aim to bring some festive spirit to our town by putting up a reduced number of displays that will be switched-on without the formal event. Due to the social distancing requirements and a number of our volunteers still being required to shield, we will be unable to install our usual 100 light displays but hope will be able to bring the holiday spirt to Thornbury during...
