Rumwell by Candlelight


Rumwell by candlelightFamilies are this December (2018) invited to our free candle lit shopping experience with food tastings and festive music.

Our annual Rumwell by Candlelight event will take place on Thursday, December 13 from 5pm until 7.30pm to raise money for two charities.

Our farm shop and cafe will be lit by candles and soft lighting during the event, which will make it such a unique, Christmas experience.

We are hosting the event this year in aid of our charities of the year, Headway Somerset and Stand Against Violence (SAV). There will be collection buckets throughout the farm shop for people to drop their change into.

A free mulled wine and mince pie will be handed out on arrival. The Somerset Hills Choir, Parkfield School Choir, Company of Voices Community Choir and the J Singers will be performing Christmas carols and other songs throughout the evening.

There will also be the chance to try some tasty food items made by our staff in our butchery, such as our award-winning sausages.

Regional suppliers such as 6 O’clock Gin will be on-site too, offering visitors samples of their range of gins. Admission and parking is free.

SAV was set up in 2005 following the murder of 17-year-old Lloyd Fouracre. SAV aims to prevent violence, its long-term consequences and the grief of losing loved ones. The workshops it delivers equip and inform students in an effective manner how to Stand Against Violence.

Headway Somerset provides social and cognitive rehabilitation for adults with brain injury and support and respite for their families through its four Brain Injury Centres based in Bridgwater, Henton, Yeovil & Taunton.

The Rumwell by Candlelight event will take place on Thursday, December 13 from 5pm until 7.30pm.
