About this Business

Blackthorpe Barn is an old medieval threshing barn, but these days the Barn and surrounding buildings are used for events including the festive Country Christmas shop, selling a wide range of Christmas decorations and gifts, and the Arts & Crafts fair at Christmas, as well as other events, the Roots Café, craft workshops and art exhibitions during the year. It is also used to host beautiful weddings during the summer months.

We are part of the Rougham Estate which grows sunflowers and pumpkins and runs events in the summer and autumn.

See the events calendar for day-to-day information, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what’s on.

The Blackthorpe Barn was built around 1550, probably by John Drury who had just acquired the Manor of Rougham through the dissolution of the Great Benedictine Abbey at Bury St Edmunds in 1539.
