We’re aiming for an outdoor pub complete with fire pits on Friday 4th February. So come along and beat those winter blues!

Harvest Beer Festival

Pub Swainswick

Pub Swainswick takes place on the first Friday of the month 6.30 – 8.30 pm. It’s a community pub where children are welcome and we serve excellent Abbey Ales along with wine, cider, soft drinks and snacks. A perfect place to meet up with friends and make new ones with occasional live music from local musicians. Sometimes it is a small gathering which means more chance to chat properly and sometimes it’s lots of people of all ages. In winter we’re in the candlelit church – in summer we spread out into the churchyard.

Bell Ringing

Bell Ringing is an activity like no other – good for the body and the brain, a deep part of our history and still enjoyed today. There are six bells at Swainswick and they have rung out in celebration, grief and warning for hundreds of years. The bellringers normally meet on Thursday evenings, from 7 to 8 pm. Complete beginners, novices and experienced ringers are all very welcome. If you are interested in giving it a go, email  or call Edward on 07824861091  

Cafe Swainswick

Currently on hold because of Covid, the cafe normally takes place every other Friday in term time from 9am-11am. Fair trade tea, coffee, biscuits, cakes and company. All profits going to The Friends of Swainswick School.

Walkers welcome

On the Circuit of Bath trail and close to the Cotswolds way, there are some beautiful walks around Swainswick. Walkers stop off at the church and help themselves to tea and coffee. There’s a loo round that back and tables and chairs for a sit and a picnic. Sometimes we organise guided walks as part of the Bath Walking Festival and we are hoping to create a Lam Valley Pilgrimage Trail linking Swainswick Church to the churches in Charlcombe, Woolley and Langridge.
