November events in Somerset

With plenty of fireworks and Christmas markets across the county in November, I decided to bring you some of the best alternative events in Somerset. Just as festive and plenty to do for all the family.

As the year draws to a close and the colder weather starts creeping back in, there's still every opportunity to get outside and enjoy all that Somerset has to offer. Whether that's cosying up by the fire with your favourite people or heading out to watch the bright lights of the many carnivals going on across the county. 

 November's dark nights give me an excuse to stay all cosy indoors in the evenings and winter walks on frosty weekends are my favourite way to start getting into the Christmas spirit. Of course, fireworks are a given in November and as the month progresses you'll find more and more Christmas markets popping up across Somerset. 


If fireworks and Christmas markets aren't quite enough to get you feeling slightly festive this November, there's plenty more to explore:

4th November: Bridgewater carnival

6th November: Burnham-On-Sea carnival

10th November: Weston Super Mare Guy Fawkes carnival

11th November: North Petherton Guy Fawkes carnival

13th November: Midsomer Norton illuminated carnival

15th November: Shepton Mallet Guy Fawkes carnival

17th November: Wells Guy Fawkes carnival

18th November: Glastonbury Guy Fawkes carnival

23rd November: Ston Easton annual loofah harvest day


 Make the most of these events by staying in a holiday cottage in Somerset.
