Event - 2020 Barrow Events
Our partners, Sacred Stones, host regular Open Days at the Soulton Long Barrow, the new monument we have been creating on our farm together in recent years.
Because of the current situation, the ways these days work has had to be adjusted for now (they have moved online onto the monument's Facebook page), and we did not hold open days in March and April though we lit the monument up with candles just the same.
The planned open day for Sunday 10th May 11am- 2pm - was held on-line, please follow this link to see the video, also embedded below.
Open Days Later in the year
Please check the below are running in light of COVID-19 risk assessments.
• Sun 28th June - we are expecting this will be held on line, on the monument’s Facebook page at 2pm and avaible to catch up on afterwards if you do not join live.
The expected open days for the rest of 2020 are as follows, but again, we are going to need to be flexible about how these work until we gain more of a sense of what is safe and fitting:
• Sun 26th July 11am- 2pm
• Sun 30th August 11am- 2pm
• Sun 27th September 11am- 2pm
• Sun 25th October 11am- 2pm
• Sun 22nd November 11am- 2pm

Online conversation with events.....
While this situation continues, we are also setting up live interviews with some of the craftspeople and artists involved in the barrow's story. Again these will be on the monument's Facebook page.
• Sun 24th May 2pm - conversation with local artist Jo Halden
• Sun 07 June 2pm - provisional, participants to be confirmed

The farm now has a barrow, #soultonlongbarrow, one of the first built it 5,000 years thanks to the team @SacredStonesLtd— Soulton Hall (@SoultonHall) April 10, 2019
Here’s a video of some images of it and the art it’s inspired
