Are you a tourism business between Brean and Porlock Weir and within five miles of the coast?
If so, the Somerset & Exmoor Coast Festival is an exciting opportunity to join with other coastal tourism operators to create a shoulder season event that brings visitors to the Somerset and Exmoor coast from across the UK and Europe.
The Festival provides a platform to showcase your products and services and create an annual event to attract visitors.
Whether you’re an event organiser, attraction, accommodation provider, eatery, food or drinks producer or retailer, or retail outlet, there’s a way for everyone to get involved.
It could be an event, a walk, sports activities, or a discount or special offer. The more Partners that join forces to offer something the more attractive to visitors the Festival becomes.

As a Festival Partner you can list your event, offer or accommodation using the Festival website’s Get Involved page. If you want some ideas about how to get involved take a look at our GET INVOLVED INFORMATION sheet here.
This year we are also introducing a What’s On: Somerset & Exmoor Coast Festival Facebook Group where you can share information about your events and offers, and we have created a Somerset & Exmoor Coast Festival Event page where you can add your events to the Discussion area.
In 2023 the Festival featured everything from walks to cider farm tours, comedy and music performances to open studios, book readings to murder mystery train rides and litter picks, pond dipping and porpoise spotting.
In 2024 we’ve got some new events for the festival and we’d love to hear your feedback about how you think the Festival can best support you – we’re creating a form so that you can let us know but if you want to get in touch you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
