Throughout the year there are lots of fantastic events to come and enjoy! From the popular food and drink festivals such as the eat:Festivals to active events such as The Exmoor Perambulation and many other sporting events hosted by Channel Events. 

We are lucky to have two steam railways in the area who regularly hold special events and celebrations. Every year the Exmoor National Park hosts the ‘Dark Skies Festival’ with family-friendly stargazing events and activities. These and so much more!

Keep an eye on our events pages to see what’s coming up.
