The weekend is fast approaching and for those still deciding how to spend their Friday through to Sunday, we pick 5 of the best ways to spend your weekend in Somerset
Join volunteers at Lytes Cary Manor, near Somerton, on a bumblebee safari around the estate and observe the different bumblebee species up close. You’ll learn how to identify each species and the lifecycle of the pollinating insects. The event will take place Saturday June 24, 2 - 2.30pm.
On Sunday June 25, visit Bath’s Parade Gardens to enjoy an all-day free family wildlife party from 11am – 6pm. Create, explore and run wild in the heart of the city. Expect performances on the bandstand, a showcase of hands-on fun from local and national environmental organisations, hundreds of ways to stretch your imagination into the world of wildlife, and much more.
David Moss will be showing new work at the Silk Mill, Frome, in a vibrant and engaging exhibition from Thursday June 22 – Monday June 26. A series of abstracts – all acrylic on canvas – encompass images derived from landscapes, architecture, dreams, nightmares and the human condition. David Miss says of his new collection: “The most exuberant use of form and colour allows me to investigate a less formal world that promotes dreams of the unobtainable.”
Kicking off Saturday June 17 to Sunday June 25, Taunton Wildlife Week is brimming with free wildlife events based around the green spaces of Taunton. Click here to find out what’s on this weekend.
Graduating students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School take to the stage at Tobacco Factory Bristol with Mike Bartlett’s powerful play, 13. One morning 12 strangers across London wake up from an identical, terrifying dream. The play is a dark and magical production of different lives woven together in a politically uncertain world that’s yearning for change. Catch the performance from Thursday June 23 to Saturday July 1.
