One month to go !
With just one month to go now really is the time to join our Patron, Michael Eavis and #flytheflagforsomerset !
We can’t quite believe it either, but May 11th is fast approaching which can only mean one thing – Somerset Day is nearly here and the organisers of this year’s celebrations are looking forward to seeing the County turned into a sea of Somerset flags.
Somerset Day takes place on the 11th May annually and marks Alfred the Great’s call to arms and the gathering of ‘all the people of Somerset’ to march against the invading Viking army, and is now an annual opportunity to celebrate all that is “great” about Somerset and its residents and communities.
And this year there are lots of things to do, starting with the Somerset Day Trails – over 100 locations have been nominated as ‘favourite places to visit’, some well-known, some not so well known.
To get involved you can buy bunting and flags here https://somersetday.com/shop/, take part in the Trails here https://somersetday.com/2022-somerset-day-trail-map/ and find some great events taking place here https://somersetday.com/events/.
Somerset Day founder Nigel Muers-Raby explains, “What better way to evoke your passion for Somerset than to visit your favourite places and businesses. We want to see Somerset turned into a sea of flags so make sure you’re ready to celebrate Somerset Day and show your commitment to Somerset on May 11th by buying a flag or some bunting to fly. We will be encouraging those that take part in our trail to fly the flag at each location they visit in order to win some great Somerset prizes”
