Yeovil’s Super Saturday comes to Yeovil Town Centre on 26 September, bringing live music, market stalls and plenty of fun activities for children.
South Somerset District Council and Yeovil Town Council have seized the opportunity to collaborate on the organisation of exciting events in Yeovil Town Centre. Super Saturday kicks off at 10am and will finish at 4pm.
There will be a flower and gardeners market which will be complemented by the monthly farmer’s market at nearby Middle Street. The annual Yeovil in Bloom prize-giving event will also take place at the bandstand.
Family orientated entertainment will be present in the form of Bugfest; a chance to see a variety of exotic and unusual creatures, as well other children’s activities including craft making, face painting, Punch & Judy shows and circus skills. Buskfest will also provide live music at various locations throughout the town centre. There will also be a children’s talent competition being held at St Johns Churchyard in the afternoon with the chance to win a small prize.
At King George Street, you will find the eclectic monthly Vintage Market organised by South Somerset District Council which consists of local retailers offering recycled or ‘up-cycled’ hand painted furniture, interiors, giftware, collectables and accessories.
Councillor Peter Gubbins, Chairman of South Somerset District Council’s Area South Committee said, “Super Saturday will have something for everyone – children’s entertainment; a variety of mouth-watering local food; a unique shopping experience at the Vintage Market; a celebration of home grown horticultural talent and live music throughout the town centre. This event is a great example of what can be achieved when organisations pull their resources together to create one great day out”.
Town Councillor, David Recardo, Chairman of the Promotions and Activities Committee commented “we are very proud of this event, which has become bigger and better each year since it started in 2007 as a celebration of Yeovil in Bloom which includes the amazing floral displays around the town, and recognition of the hard work by the gardeners in Yeovil who admirably tend to their allotments and gardens. This year the bug theme has continued and we very much welcome the hard work of four primary schools (Huish, Oaklands, Holy Trinity and Barwick and Stoford) who have crafted hundreds of bugs with the creative guidance of “Dinosaur Roars’” Paul Stickland. Working in partnership with SSDC and the community has made even more exciting activities possible which we hope will entice lots of visitors into the Town Centre.”
