PUBLISHED: 16:19 10 December 2018
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
1. eat: Christmas, Italian Gardens in Weston-Super-Mare
The team behind eat:Festivals are pulling on their elf ears and heating up the braziers for their first festive festival on Saturday, December 15 (9am-4pm). We are reliably told not to expect a German market homage though - this will be a distinctly Somerset event. There will be a large outdoor market filled with festive food and drink in the Italian Gardens in Weston-super-Mare with a fantastic range of entertainment all day.
2. Sing For Somerset, Wells Cathedral
Somerset Community Foundation invites you to join them for their wonderful Sing for Somerset Christmas carol service in Wells Cathedral on Saturday, December 15 at 7pm. It includes a festive mix of traditional and contemporary music conducted by Laurence Blyth, featuring the Mid-Somerset Orchestra, Somerset Voices choir and organist Matthew Redman.
3. Christmas Vegan Fair, Clevedon
Come and celebrate plant-based living at Clevedon’s Christmas Vegan Fair hosted on Sunday, December 16 at the Community Centre and Princess Hall. Expect a diverse range of vegan products and brands from hot food, health and beauty products to clothing and accessories.
4. The Snow Baby, The Brewhouse in Taunton
From December 12-16, Soap Soup Theatre presents a magical children’s theatre show at Taunton’s Brewhouse, with beautiful puppetry, imaginative storytelling and music that will give you goosebumps. It’s a gentle show exploring family, love and loss, with lots of music, confetti and funny bits for the whole family to enjoy.
5. Late night shopping in Porlock
On Saturday, December 15 the annual Traditional Porlock Late Night Shopping and Santa Dash will return for later opening hours, festival foodie treats and lively street entertainment.
