Event Details

Discover the fascinating traditions of our farming history.  This popular annual harvest event provides a unique opportunity to explore the sights, sounds and smells of harvest past, with the Museum’s restored 1947 threshing machine working hard to process the year’s rye crop – as long as the rain holds off! See the Museum’s heavy horses, Clydesdale Harvey and Shires West Winds Samuel and West Winds Joshua working in the Museum’s fields, demonstrating the importance of the heavy horse in traditional agriculture. Over the weekend the Museum’s Henton chapel will be home to a beautiful display of harvest produce, most of which has been grown in the Museum’s beautiful historic gardens. Take part in some family friendly Harvest themed craft activities. Standard admission prices apply. Free entry for Annual Pass holders. Please note that all activities are subject to change and weather.
