Time for harvest festivals!
Festival time in Somerset...
JULY. The Wedmore Arts Festival got off to a cracking start on Friday 3 July with a sensational evening of jazz brought to us by Clare Teal and Edward Leaker's Swing Jazz Orchestra. Carmen opened on 8 July in a magnificent big-top style tent on the edge of Wedmore. It's unbelievable that so many big names converged on the relatively small village of Wedmore for the week-long Festival. I imagine it's a bit like living in Edinburgh!
Our own equally exciting news is that we have been given planning permission to put a Shepherd's Hut (rather like the one opposite)on our extra land across the lane. The Mowbarton Shepherd's Hut! We now have to get electricity, water and drainage over there - but it is all in hand and we hope to have everything ready for guests (it sleeps two) by September, just in time for the Theale Flower Show on 5 September, the Wedmore Real Ale Festival from 18 - 21 September.
