The biannual 10 Parishes Festival is returning this year, with a slate of performances, talks and events set to take place across the nine days of celebration.

Starting from Saturday September 9 the visual and performing arts festival will take place in and around the town of Wiveliscombe.

Barns, cafes, pubs and village halls will play host to exhibitions of all types of art, including sculpture, textiles, glass, photography and more.

The Bear Inn's skittle alley will become the home to sculpture by Tom Harral, painting by Joss Harral, and paintings and photography by Alexandra Lavizzari.

 An Organic Farming Journey is a talk on Thursday September 14 by Dan Holmes who left the motor trade in 2015, bought a 260-acre farm at Brompton Ralph and started a herd of English Longhorn cattle.

Other highlights include the Tannahill Weavers performing at St Andrews Church in Wiveliscombe and Bethany Askew who talks about the inspiration behind the poetry Coleridge wrote during the three years he lived in Somerset.
