Somerset Festival of Nature is a celebration of Somerset’s natural environment; its enduring and stunning landscapes and seascapes, its vibrant green spaces and inspiring natural places, and all the rich and diverse wildlife that lives in this wonderful county.

The Festival is modelled on kindred Festivals across the UK, with the same shared ambition – to find as many ways as possible to put people of all ages back in touch with nature, and help us all recognise and appreciate its value in our lives. May 2018 saw the birth of the very first Somerset Festival of Nature and the fun continues this year...


What does the Festival look like for 2019?

This year’s celebration of Nature is from the 31st May to the 2nd June. Participating organisations have come together to offer a varied range of nature-based activities and events for everyone to get involved with across the county, from wild foraging, outdoor theatre and beach exploring, to camping out under the stars and photography for those who want to capture their dose of nature in a creative way.  

Join us in celebrating the natural world in Somerset. Put nature in your life and join us on a journey to build a brighter future for our natural world. For wildlife, for people and for our children.
