Avalon Marshes Festival

Taken from the new Avalon Marshes Website:

The Avalon Marshes Festival will be returning bigger and better in 2014, running from Saturday 12th July to Saturday 26th July. Following a very successful first year in 2013, the Avalon Marshes Festival is a celebration of the rich diversity of wildlife and the 10,000 years of cultural heritage of the Avalon Marshes in Somerset.

The event comprises a wide range of activities and events which reflect the wonderful and varied wildlife, history, archaeology, produce and landscape of this area. The festival provides a brilliant taster for the area, which has a huge amount to offer people of all ages. Being largely flat, it is a fantastic area to explore on foot or by bike and there are lots of attractions and places to eat and drink where you will receive a warm welcome.

The festival kicks off with the Avalon Marshes Day on Saturday 12 July. This is a day of activities, tours, talks, exhibitions and more based at the Red Brick Building in Glastonbury. Following this there will be over a week of events in the wider Avalon Marshes; a great chance to explore, have fun and find out more. The Festival will be rounded off with a Wildlife Extravaganza and Family Picnic at Westhay Moor.

Among the many highlights will be a Roman themed family day, guided walks and cycle tours of the area, an art exhibition, Levels’ Best farmers market and a variety of open days.
