It’s just ten days until the very first ‘Dulverton Sounds’ Music Festival on Saturday 25 May to be held on the Exmoor Lawns beside the River Barle throughout the day.

Anyone visiting the Dulverton Farmers Market in the morning can stay in our pretty Exmoor town and head to the festival for a fun packed Dulverton Bank Holiday Saturday!

From 12 noon folk music fans will be heading to the ‘chill out’ tent to play their own music with their own instruments – and vocals too.  Why not join them?!

Then from 3 to 10pm there’ll be a large marquee featuring music of almost every genre – a big brass band, folk music, a shanty band, songs from the pop divas, country & western tunes, acoustic guitars, jazz and retro pop.  Something to suit every taste! For the full programme and line up click HERE

To ensure the day goes with a swing, there’ll be a large refreshments area from 3pm featuring hot and cold food and locally produced beers, ciders and spirits.

Tickets for the ‘Dulverton Sounds’ Music Festival are now available HERE or from Dulverton Post Office. They will also be available to purchase on the door – but we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment!  Just £10 for the whole day and children under 14 go FREE.  All festivalgoers will be issued with a wristband.

Enormous thanks to Festival Sponsors, Oggies Music of Dulverton and Tarr Farm Inn.

A brand new event for Exmoor – the Dulverton Antiques Valuation Day! On Sunday 25 March from 10.30am to 3.30pm a mini ‘Antiques Roadshow’ came to town!

Adam Partridge (pictured above) – a famous face from the television on Flog It!Antiques Road TripDickinson’s Real Deal and Bargain Hunt – has spoken recently on BBC Radio Somerset expressing his eager anticipation for the event. Adam said “When we were asked to offer a team of valuers for this event we instantly said yes! With our salesroom only a few miles away in Hele, we shall be visiting this area a lot in the future”.

Adam and his team of experienced auctioneers joined Visit Dulverton to host the event in Dulverton’s historic Town Hall.  Visitors were invited to bring along their antiques, jewellery, fine art & collectors’ items.  For a small fee the specialists on hand gave a valuation and history of the items that were brought along.  The fee was £5 for a maximum of three portable items per person (that were small enough to carry!). Refreshments and live music were on hand.

Visit Dulverton is also promoting the message of “repair, reuse, recycle” with other stalls at the event -including the team from the Somerset Waste Partnership who took donations of unwanted small tech for reuse (laptops, PCs, mobile phones etc) and helped visitors set up their own community repair groups.

The event was such a success that a second one is planned for Sunday September 23 at Dulverton Town Hall.  Keep an eye on the Visit Dulverton website and social media pages for more information about the event https://visitdulverton.com/dulverton-antiques-valuation-event/
