Plans are well underway for the annual family-friendly extravaganza. This year’s event will be opened by none other than Michael Eavis, founder of the Glastonbury Festival, which celebrates its landmark 50th anniversary this summer.
Attractions will include a climbing wall, bouncy castles, a duck race, face painting, Punch and Judy, the Silver Band, street organ, goat rides, balloon modelling, music workshops and much, much more. Exciting plans are also underway to bring entertainment to the skate park.
This year’s Maypole Dance Festival will also sees over 100 local school children taking part in the main arena outside the Somer Centre followed by other community group displays through the afternoon. Inside the Somer Centre there will be displays of Art and Photography as well as the popular Tea Room with delicious cakes and sandwiches.
The Arts Festival also brings its main celebration to the heart of the Fayre. After the success of last year attendees will be able to enjoy a range of music, poetry, puppet shows, drama and more from the best local creative minds.
