We thought we should publicise the incredible Green Scythe Fair that is happening this weekend in South Somerset. RtLs will be there, enjoying the debates (Post-Brexit Agriculture), workshops, crafts, music and market stalls. Plenty for children to enjoy too so come along. More info on
This is a magical one day environmental fair in a beautiful setting on the Somerset Levels run entirely by volunteers using wind, sun and muscle power. Excellent live music, over 100 stalls displaying traditional skills, crafts and produce, lively environmental debates, delicious organic local food, a variety of the best ales and ciders and a large kids area with activities throughout the day.
The Green Scythe Fair includes the celebrated West Country Scythe Championship, known far and wide for the stupendous and often hilarious feats of haymaking by international scythesmen and women, who mow a swathe through the summer festival scene. It is probably the most authentic, and enjoyable, country fair in all England!
