Bristol Mendip Hills PLACES WHAT'S ON Wrington

Spring into action this weekend; fun things to do around the Mendips

From traditional English May fairs to German Bierfest it’s all going on this weekend.

If your beds and borders look a bit empty head to Wrington Primary School on Saturday morning from 10am until noon where you will be able to pick up spring and summer colour as well as veg seedlings.  While you’re there buy a cuppa and a homemade cake; all proceeds to the school’s PTA.

Celebrate the start of spring with May dancing.  Gates open 1.45pm on Saturday 7 May for Winscombe’s traditional May fair on the green.  A popular local family event including owl displays, maypole dancing, a magician and BBQ.

The Bierfest has arrived.  A pop-up German village in Bristol’s Millennium Square will allow you to experience German culture, music, and of course steins of German beer.  If beer isn’t your tipple you can try German sekt – a sparkling wine.  There for the whole weekend, entry is £5.

Take a stroll around 150 classic cars at Farringtons Farm Shop, Farrington Gurney.  Enjoy a breakfast from 8am on Sunday, then watch the cars set off for a tour of the Mendips at 10.30am.

From menswear to womenswear, homewares to collectibles and accessories to jewellery – think old-world wares without paying through the teeth! Whether you’re after 1920’s beading or 1990’s grunge, a totally unique outfit or the latest winter trend, Judy’s Vintage Fair at the Paintworks think they have something for everyone! Throw into the mix sale rails, designer bargains and street style and you’re in for a corker of a day!
