Bremhill Parish Children's History Festival

12th December, 10:00am - 12:30pm, Bremhill Village Hall

Children are invited to come along on Sunday 12th December at 10am for the Bremhill Parish Children’s History Festival in Bremhill Village Hall. The event is targeted at 6 to 12 year olds.

The event is free, but as tickets are strictly limited please reply by Monday 22nd November to Fiona Jarman fiha80@hotmail.com or Mills Jackson camilla@barakacatering.co.uk with details of the name and ages of the children.

The morning will include a range of exciting activities including:

  • hearing “horrible history” tales from the history of the parish
  • brewing up some magic potions
  • making a clay pot
  • decorating a biscuit – in the style of a floor tile!
  • making a brass rubbing
  • dressing up in historical costumes
  • handling local historical finds from the Wiltshire Museum.

We will also be launching a history competition – for a creative response to any aspect of the history of the parish.  This could be a short story, a poem, a painting, a photo, a short film/Tik Tok or any other form of creative expression.  The deadline for entries is 7th January 2022.

Parents – you might like to follow on the morning’s historical activities by walking the two and a half mile “Bremhill Loop” from the Village Cross to Maud Heath’s Monument, the Dumb Post and back. The trail is available on the Bremhill Parish History Trail app, or from the website Trails Around Bremhill Parish

Welcome to The Bremhill Parish History Group

The aims of the group are to:

  • Write the definitive history of the Parish for the Victoria County History series
  • Publish an attractive book which captures the varied history of our community
  • Involve the whole community in the project

The aim of our website is to:

  • To provide a forum for those interested in researching the history of Bremhill Parish and share their interests by gathering, archiving and publishing the information in order to help advance education in schools and of the public.

We are delighted to announce the publication of our parish history book in December 2021. This was made possible by grant funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and matched funding from various local sources for which we are incredibly grateful.

We have also been fortunate to receive significant funding and ongoing support from the Wiltshire Victoria County History Trust.
