The fireworks and children's Halloween party is on a Saturday close to the 5th November. This is a fun event for all ages: our children's party usually has an entertainer, David Hendy. Our fireworks are set off to music, and afterwards there is live music and a bar in the hall, with refreshments served for all to enjoy.
Our village fete is usually held in July, and is well attended by neighbouring parishes. Preparations start at 3am when the fire is lit for the hog roast which is slow cooked and ready to serve at lunchtime. Our Wacky Races are a highlight, with karts judged not only on speed, but character and effort put in to the build.
Other entertainment includes live music from our local band, 3 Pint Rule, a dog show, a bottle stall, the lucky programme, the children's lucky dip, a prize draw, children's games, crown and anchor, darts, cake stall, book stall, along with cream teas and a bar which as the day goes on serves "George Nympton Sangria".
The Horticultural Society's annual Summer Show is held around the beginning of August each year, and is an opportunity for the villagers to show off their horticultural, baking and craft skills. The schedule is published in June but don't wait until then to plant your vegetables and flowers!
