Somerset’s best known band are heading for Mells Daffodil Festival on Easter Monday along with belly dancers, classic cars and a bouncy castle.
The organisers are billing it as ‘The Big Festival from a Small Village” and the population of Mells swells by thousands for the day.
Daisy Steele, part of the team who organises the festival said “The festival is such a well-loved event. We’ve been going for nearly 40 years. We’ve got 100 street stalls, morris men, the Wurzels. Whatever happens it’ll be a great day out!”
The festival is to be opened at 11am by Charlene White, ITV news presenter. Daisy and the team are keeping fingers crossed for better weather and hoping Storm Katie stays away. And they might just get it as the rain is due to blow over by mid-morning.
The team have set up something for everyone – town criers, circus skills, children’s crafts and a dog show. Not forgetting stationary engines, face painting, and the huge array of street stalls. The team have pulled together a range of street food from around the world from stonebaked pizzas, to Alpaca burgers and vegan stalls.
Tickets are just £3 for adults, £1 for children. They are available to buy online at billetto.co.uk/mells-daffodil-festival. There will be a limited number of tickets available to buy on the gate on the day, people are advised to arrive early to avoid queues.
