The list of entertainment looks set to make this year’s Cheddar Festive Night to be the biggest and best yet.
As last year’s one was so popular, this year there will be two land trains with routes from the Riverside Pub to Goughs, with a middle point at Cox’s Mill car park.
Hog roasts, BBQ, mulled wine and mince pies will be on offer at various points around the village, with the latter kicking off straight after the St Andrew’s Church service.
Two choirs, Moor Harmony and Cheddar Valley Adult Voices will be performing as well as Clarindon Recorders.
More music galore will fill the air as the Salvation Army band will be performing too.
Despite their busy schedule, Santa and his elves have confirmed that they will meet and greet in their grotto, which will be on Queen’s Row.
Cheddar First School Choir will be singing their hearts out at Cheddar Methodist Church and a ‘Hula Troop’ is will be hula hopping their way around the gorge.
If that wasn’t enough, the tombola is back with a trolley dash and prizes donated from Cheddar businesses.
Billy Bear will of course be making an appearance, so make sure you get your picture with him if you see him.
While you’re snapping away with your cameras, you can take a family photo at the nativity scene picture opportunity, organised by the Baptist Church.
Swopping in this year will also be Birds of Prey, brought to you by Secret World.
If you are looking for even more fun, there will be a Wolly Mamouth Treasure Hunt and lots of stalls stretching all through the village and gorge.
The new Cheddar Deli in Tweentown will be opening their doors for people to decorate their own Christmas tree balls and try free samples of their food.
Lanes will be joining in the fun with a bouncy castle, stalls and their own hog roast.
Car parking for the night has been announced with Kings Fitness and Leisure, Cheddar Sports and Social Club and the Catholic Church offering up their car parks for the night.
If you are coming from the B3151, you can park up the gorge – but once the spaces are gone, you will have to take an alternative route to Cheddar as the gorge will be closed.
The message from the council as far as parking goes is to plan ahead, with Cheddar residents being urged to walk.
