Harvest Home (Wedmore)

Harvest Homes started when farmers put on a meal with cider to thank the workers for bringing in the harvest. Wedmore's event has now evolved into a full day of events, starting with a Church Service, followed by the Harvest Home procession, lead by the Harvest Home King, Queen and Princess, with local organisations and familys having colourfull trailers drawn through the village by tractors.

There is a lunch for ladies and gentleman over the age of 16, in the marquee on the playing fields ground, followed by children's sports events and then a tea.

The evening sees an evening of entertainment, often with a tribute band playing to a packed marquee.  Wedmore's HH traditionally takes place on the third Friday in August.
