The Bar Convent Trust was established in 1986, three centuries after the convent's founding. It enables us to continue our charitable objectives and maintain our Grade I Listed buildings for future generations to enjoy.
In 2015, following a multi-million-pound renovation, we became The Bar Convent Living Heritage Centre.
The installation of a state-of-the-art interactive Exhibition allows us to tell the rich and fascinating story of the convent, spanning three centuries of social change, perseverance and faith in action. You can also learn more about the history of the Bar Convent online.
