May 11th is Somerset Day

We’re pleased to be supporting the second annual Somerset Day, which takes place on 11th May.

Hosted by Passion for Somerset, the official date for Somerset Day was voted for by the public in 2015 in honour of King Alfred the Great – the only King in British history to be called Great.

We’re hosting a number of activities:

  • A special celebration at The Railway Inn, Sandford, at 6.30pm on Wednesday 11th May, when there’ll be traditional dancing from the Mendip Morrismen, as well as a special cider and cheese tasting. All welcome!
  • Somerset Day promotions in the Myrtle Farm Cider Shop.
  • We have also teamed up with two other much-loved Somerset brands, Wyke Farms and Miles Tea & Coffee, to run a #LoveSomerset social media campaign throughout the month of May. Visit us on Facebook and Twitter during May, join in and tell us why you #LoveSomerset.

There’ll be events taking place throughout the county celebrating this special day – find out more about it by following Somerset Day on twitter at @SomersetDay1 and SomersetDay2016 on Facebook.
