Celebrate Autumn in Watchet 2022


As the nights draw in and the wind begins to blow Autumn is quickly upon us! Why not pop into Watchet and see what’s going on. The local shops have started to dress their windows with their Autumn Stock.

With the half term break at the end of October check out the the things you can do!


There is a Fairy Trail from the Visitor Centre and some of the shops will have treat baskets for the children completing the trail!  Why not hunt for a Woodland Creature Pebble around the town? Each pebble will send you to the place to collect your prize!

Look out for a Hedgehog Event with a Hedgehog craft, information about looking after local hedgehogs and a colouring competition.

One of last years colouring entries ……….. isn’t it fantastic!

Cosmo the Robot is visiting the Library with interactive fun and story telling. Serendipity Cafe have Halloween ornaments for you to paint and East Quay have Gargole themed creative workshops!

There is a Fossil Walk and a Spooky Walk from the Visitor Centre as part of the half term fun.

Then at the end of the week there is a choice of Parties for Halloween, whether you are a child or an adult there is something for you!
