Our World Renowned Events

Not all our events may be as highly acclaimed as WOMAD - arguably the best World Music festival in the whole world - but we do have some absolute crackers on the schedule.

 

Take a look at our calendar below to get an idea of what's coming up for us all to enjoy.

WOMAD - for those who aren't yet aware - is a festival for the entire family and is just a longish morning's walk from town in mid-summer.
