Dunster by Candlelight
7-8 December, www.dunsterbycandlelight.co.uk and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/dunster-castle
Medieval Dunster in Somerset will be transported back in time for a few hours on 7 and 8 December, when the village and castle will be lit, almost exclusively, by candlelight. Christmas stalls will fill the streets, there will be Morris dancers and carollers, and local shops will be selling everything from local cheeses and ciders to handmade gifts ideal as stocking fillers. Dunster Castle, run by the National Trust, is also joining in with the festivities. There is no parking in the village or National Trust car park from 2.30pm on the candlelit nights, but special buses will operate from Minehead and Watchet.
