The Henge Shop is in a unique location in the centre of Avebury, the largest prehistoric stone circle in the world. This unparalleled setting is the reason we stock the best quality merchandise. The Henge Shop is not owned or managed by The National Trust or English Heritage and as one of the only independent businesses in the World Heritage site we are free to select our own stock, using fair trade or local suppliers wherever possible. We have a wide range from gold, silver and pewter jewellery, woollens, tee shirts, hats, dowsing rods, minerals and fossils to books on a variety of subjects from the archaeological to the arcane. We are also used as a base by local people who run tours in the area. The Henge Shop has been very generous to the Club’s Auction of Promises and other events.

Avebury Rocks Music Festival Friday 27 – Sunday 29 July 2018 Avebury Rocks is a celebration of all forms of great live music, from rock to folk and everything in-between. We aim to bring you a fantastic weekend of musical treats – you might even discover your new favourite band! All proceeds from Avebury Rocks go towards supporting the care and services provided by local charity Prospect Hospice. Avebury Rocks was the inspiration of local-born musician Nick Harper as a way to give something back to Prospect Hospice, the local hospice who provided care for his late mother. Nick, with the help of David Uttley and the original organising committee, set out to find a talented and willing group of musicians who would happily perform in a field in Wiltshire, next to the famous standing stones of Avebury. Eight years later we’re still going strong! The festival features an eclectic line-up of local and national artists over two stages, and we champion those making new and original music.
