The first Friday and Saturday of every December light the way for the Christmas season as Dunster by Candlelight takes place in a pretty Somerset village.
The picturesque medieval village right in the heart of Exmoor transforms into a heart-warming shimmering scene for two nights, as the street is lit up with traditional lamps. Residents parade thorough the cobbled streets in period costume and enjoy family activities, and this event is a unique one that gets everyone into the Christmas spirit.
The entertainment includes costumed stiltwalkers, carol singing, and of course Morris dancers, and the Christmassy atmosphere adds to the village’s historic charm. Dunster’s local shops will be open for the Exmoor event, and street stalls will also offer food and drink. The roads around Dunster close for the event so it's best to take the Park and Ride in if you want to join the fun.
