Last May 60 year 3 children from Easington Primary came to the Barn to camp for one night. Artist Nicola Balfour and Elaine Beard from Dodgy Clutch Theatre Company devised with staff a Roman themed camp.
The children were split into legions and set up camp in the field. Food was prepared and served in the outdoor kitchen. Activities included;
Following a trail to the beach to find a Roman treasure provided by Segadunum.
Designing and painting silk standards representing individual Roman Gods.
Taking part in The Roman games.
Making a clay drawing tablet.
Listening to stories around the fire.
Making and eating damper bread on the fire.
The Barn is available for schools to hire for residential events. The unique locality of the farm enables children
to access and experience 3 very varied landscapes of the fields, woods and the beach.
Camping only with use of toilets, outdoor kitchen and veranda area
Caravans -£40/50 per night
Camping Pods £30/80 per night
