The Nailsea Tithe Barn Trust was formed in 2006. It became a registered charity with the aim to: 'save, repair, refurbish the Tithe Barn and to make it available for use by groups within the local community who are seeking to provide educational, social, spiritual and recreational services for the benefit of the residents of Nailsea'.
The first stage of this bold vision was brought to fruition in June 2011 when the Tithe Barn was officially opened to the delight and pride of the many people who had devoted time, energy and commitment to the project.

In September 2011 the focus of the Trust changed to reflect the second phase in the development of the Tithe Barn. Since then the Barn has become a hive of activities, details of which can be discovered elsewhere on this website. This is just the beginning, and the trustees, working in co-operation with the Town Council, continue to pursue the vision of making the Tithe Barn a thriving venue for the whole community of Nailsea. Come and visit the Tithe Barn. You'll be very welcome!
