Why go somewhere bland? History, different and somewhere so old it’s long-standing, just what makes it an experience not an event!Reposted from @cruckbarnmk

We're not just a wedding venue!

We also host corporate events, so if you're looking for meeting space or a setting for a team day, we have plenty of outdoor space and our historic Cruck Barn has capacity for up to 12 delegates (ensuring we are Covid secure).

For a peaceful and green setting, just 2.5 miles from CMK, email functions@mkcdc.org.uk

And we all love a good story!Unmissable story-telling - tonight sees the world premiere of 'Bletchley Girls: Fight for Equality'. This is a new three part radio drama by Lou Beckett inspired by the real life stories of Codebreakers Mavis Lever (later Batey) and Margaret Rock (who both worked here in Cottage 3.)

Three half hour episodes will go live at 7pm on 17, 18 and 19 Sept as part of Gloucester History Festival.
