Cullompton’s Autumn Festival is a well-known event in the Culm Valley
– not to be over looked this October…
‘It’s a feast of celebration with locally produced food and crafts in Cullompton High Street and The Walronds.’ Explains organiser Judy Morris.
Judy states ‘There will be loads of fun, exciting and free family activities at Cullompton Autumn Fest 2022 including, free drop-in children’s circus skills workshops in the Walronds garden, with Higher Beings circus, as well as lots of food and craft stalls to tempt you!’
Cullompton’s SpringFest and Autumn Festival are annual events, which take place on the 2nd Saturday of April and October. A committee of volunteers work hard behind the scenes to bring these events to Cullompton’s High Street.
This year will see Autumn Festival take over Cullompton’s High Street on Saturday 8 October from 9.30am – 2pm.
Cullompton’s award-winning Farmers’ market will be attending with extra stalls, celebrating Culm Valley’s local seasonal produce in the Bullring during the event. Market Manager, Chris states, ‘We will be providing a great selection of food, drink, plants, crafts and musical entertainment. Pop-along and feel the buzz at the Bullring and have a chat with our amazing stall holders!’
There’s a scarecrow competition as part of this year’s Cullompton Autumn Festival. Many shops, cafes and restaurants in the town centre will be taking part in the ‘circus themed’ window competition. Along with some ‘Festival specials’. Come and pound the High Street and see which shop you feel should win!
Creative Cullompton (funded by Historic England) will be supporting the event with Vik Westaway offering willow crown making in the Walronds garden. A number of venues across the town will be taking part in Autumn festivities. The Community Centre will be hosting cookery demonstrations, with children’s craft and story telling taking place at the Hayridge Centre.
It’s an event for all the family with no entry fee, just head to the Walronds or Cullompton Farmers’ market to get started. Parking is available at Forge Way Carpark (Station Rd) and St Andrew Street Carpark (both pay and display).
