Hello all, thank you for visiting. We are working on a few more fun fact packed Somerset blogs in coming weeks. However, this week we wanted just to share some things happening around the county as we finish up the Carnival Season and head towards the festive celebrations:
Glastonbury Carnival. More information here
Not been to a carnival yet this year? Head to Glastonbury this weekend for the last in the region. Main procession starts at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday 17th November.
History of West Country Dialect, Radstock. More information here
If you liked our post from last week, you will love this talk hosted by Radstock Museum. It takes a look at the history of our dialect, local words and customs. It is on at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday 20th November at the Radstock Working Mans Club. Admission is £3.00, under 18 year olds free.
Fireworks at Sea, Weston-super-Mare. More information here
Missing the firework displays of a couple of weeks ago? Don’t fear, Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier has you covered on Saturday 17th November at 5:30 p.m. with a firework spectacular.
Somerset Poppy Display, Wells. More information here
Following the moving Remembrance Day tributes last weekend, you can still pay your respects. The Bishops Palace is hosting a public installation of 8,000 poppies made by school children in and around Wells. Each poppy represents a serviceman from Somerset or who served in a Somerset regiment and lost their life in World War One. It is being displayed until 25 November.
Lantern Parade, Yeovil. More information here
Looking ahead to Christmas, lots of town centre lights are about to be switched on. Here is a nice early one for you to get you in the mood. Saturday 17th November, 5.30pm Yeovil town centre.
