The Bishops Palace, Wells

This popular annual event is held every August Bank Holiday Monday starting at 11.00 am. As in previous years there will be a flotilla of homemade rafts racing on the moat. In the adjacent park, stalls will provide something of interest for all ages. Musical entertainment will be on the bandstand with a brass band performing throughout the day.

Weather permitting there will be a hot air balloon launch at 6pm in the Palace Fields. They also, subject to operational conditions, have a flypast from a vintage aircraft. Money raised from this event is split between the Bishops chosen charity, 1955 City of Wells Air Cadets & City of Wells Lions who raise money for local good causes.
