What’s on in South Somerset in October 2018

The transformation has begun. Scattered across the floor are crisp leaves creating a haven of bright oranges, reds and browns for wellies, both big and small. The evening chill starts to creep in and where would we be without the occasional shower of rain. Together, we have a partially complete checklist for Autumn, all we need now is the perfect autumnal bucket list to enjoy this time of year to its fullest. Here is our guide to what is on in Somerset this October.

Ilminster Carnival – 6th October 

Colour, lights and plenty of carnival vibe will be at Ilminster this weekend with their over 100 feet long float chain. A great way to spend the evening!
