Where did April go? May has swept in swiftly and we have already been enjoying the May Day festivities. However, May brings a lot more than just May Day… Somerset Day will be celebrated again this year on 11th May! Here is what is on in South Somerset in May 2018.
Over the weekend, Yeovil Showground will be holding a 3-day event full of entertainment, events and even a fairground for the May Day Bank Holiday. Definitely worth a day out!

This bank holiday why not join in on the May day fun with the Kingsbury May Festival! A celebration to welcome in Spring, this is a true community event!
Kingsbury Episcopi Village
It is Somerset Day, and what better way to celebrate than taking part in a heritage walk to explore the natural beauty and history of our wonderful county Somerset, starting in Taunton.
If you prefer a much more active day, the Town Tree Trail 10K race will definitely take your breath away and if racing isn’t for you, then you can always take part in the Fun Run which starts half an hour earlier. So, grab your costumes and get running!
Kingsbury Episcopi Community Centre & Recreation Ground
The Levels Best Farmers Market at Montacute House is back! One of our favourite farmers markets, the Levels Best is a great opportunity to find locally produced products!
Every Sunday, a different local band performs at the Vivary Park bandstand. Whenever you are in Taunton, make sure you pop down to the bandstand to enjoy a free afternoon of music.
What better way to end May than a BBQ! Hestercombe Gardens in Taunton will be serving some delicious hot food, straight from the BBQ on the courtyard – perfect!
