A surprise guest

1940’s enthusiast David Harman called into the Barn on April 7 – our first open weekend – dressed as an ARP (Air Raid Precaution) warden. His outfit included a tin hat and gas mask as well as ID and money. David mingled with visitors through the day and has promised to call in again.

We’re delighted to announce that once again The BSA Owners Club, East London Branch, will be visiting the barn on Sunday 15th May to display and talk about their classic bikes – and all bikers are welcome.



Film crew arrive at the Barn

Late January saw  a film crew at the Barn – students from RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts) were making a short film called ‘The Final Frolick’ as part of their degree courses. The period film is set in 1939 and follows three young men who are about to go to war – and one of them has a ‘romp in the hay’ before he is called up. It took two days of filming to create just four minutes of film.
