There are a number of events centred around Tarvin's St Andrew's Church on Saturday 14th September.

  • Starting at 2.30pm from the church there is a Historical walking tour guided by Tarvin Local History Group of the historic centre of Tarvin township. Its history begins in Roman times and the centre contains half-timbered cottages and fine Georgian buildings as well as the imposing St. Andrews church.

  • Finally to conclude a great day, Tarvin's Art Group are staging an exhibition of their work in the Parish Room (Old Grammar School- Grade II listed). They will be serving light refreshments so you could buy a cup of tea and a painting at the same time!
