Lower Shaw Farm reopening celebration

By Barrie Hudson - 2 July 2021


Swindon arts and education venue Lower Shaw Farm has announced its new programme of events.

The first is a special one to celebrate the full reopening of the farm, called Reconnect Weekend.

It will be held from Friday to Sunday, 30 July to 1 August, and a spokesperson said: "What have you missed? Where have you been? Who have you seen? What have you been up to? What would you like to do now?

"Celebrate? Make things? Walk? Talk? Play games? Have a sauna or a swing? Tell stories and sing songs round a yard fire? Meet old friends and make new ones?

"This is a chance to chill out at LSF, reconnect with people you have missed, meet others you really should know, and, quite simply, have a nice time."

A Circus Fun Weekend will be held from Friday, 6 August to Monday, 9 August, and the Lower Shaw Farm Family Activity Week will run from Sunday to Sunday, 15 to 22 August.

The spokesperson said of the activity week: "This is a week for people of all ages. We will do things, make things, and have a lot of fun.

"Mornings are likely to be spent art and crafting it in the big shed, while the afternoons will be filled with games, outings, and walking trips.

"Evenings will find us round the campfire, telling tales or reading a good book, together, singing songs, and watching stars. And those are only the official bits! 

"The rest is determined by who comes, who connects, and who makes things happen. In the past this has included juggling, philosophy, board games galore, origami, creative writing, pizza making, a cabaret, campfire cooking, walks, yoga, sauna, riding on the vintage red tractor, and lots more!"

Lower Shaw Farm will host a Yoga and Massage Bank Holiday Weekend from 27 to 30 August, while the weekend of 24 to 26 September will be a special working weekend.
