We will be celebrating Somerset’s 2023 birthday over the second weekend in May.

With a new Unitary Authority formally taking up the reins in April 2023, we will be working with Somerset County Council and others to make the 2023  Somerset Day weekend an opportunity to celebrate the ‘gathering together of all the people of Somerset’ – to look forward to a new era  whilst recognising the importance of Somerset Day as the occasion in May 828 when Alfred the Great ‘gathered all the people of Somerset’ to defeat the invading Danish army.
