The Bishop’s Palace in Wells has announced that it will be holding a brand-new Festival in September 2019, designed to celebrate the Harvest Season.
Following the popularity of the annual Garden Festival, it was decided that a new Flagship event should be introduced in Autumn for locals and visitors to enjoy the “fruits of the season”.
The event will encompass a range of activities and entertainment, including an array of stalls, selling everything from cheese to cider and chutney, a variety of talks and Q&A sessions with tips on growing your own fruit and veg and on using local produce, dancing from local Morris Men, live music acts including the Wells City Brass Band and a chance to see and understand the Palace Allotments.
For younger visitors, there will be crafting activities with autumnal and eco-themes and a chance to take part in some hands-on gardening sessions in the Community Garden.
There will also be a collection, in co-ordination with local aid charities, for dried & canned food, and essentials. Please check the website nearer the time for a list of much needed items.
The event will be held in aid of the Palace Trust and tickets will be £9 Adult, £4 Child 5-18, Under 5’s and Palace Members are free, Groups (10+) £7. There is an early bird discount of £1 for advance online tickets.
