Garden Volunteer at Kilver Court Gardens
 Why are we looking for Garden volunteers?
It’s an exciting time in the Kilver Court Garden as we continue on a path of renewal and change that has already seen a brand new plant nursery, re-designed sub-tropical island, fern stumpery and complete overhaul of our massive 100m herbaceous border, all in the last 2 years! As we look towards 2018 and beyond, our sights are set on some major design projects including the modernisation of our 1960’s Chelsea gold-medal winning rockery and creation of a Mediterranean border by our south facing sloped lawn. We also hope to be featured on BBC Gardeners' World this year with an update on all the changes we've made since we were last on the programme in 2014. But if we are to achieve our ambitious plans, we’re going to need some help!

The Street - Somerset's Ultimate Scare Attraction at Shepton Mallet Jail House
25th-27th October 2018

from 25th, 26th, 27th October

Somerset's Newest Halloween Attraction
Somerset's Ultimate Scare Maze is coming to Shepton Mallet Prison this October, designed and operated by Immersive Events (SCAR Award winners, Best Zombie Experience Event 2017).

During the height of the cold war, the Soviet Union developed a new chemical weapon to use against America. This was released on a small community after intelligence suggested there was a secret government facility operating in the area. The chemical mutated into the ‘Nex infection’ and it was quickly contained to the local area. Residents tried to flee but it was too late. Will you contract the infection? Will you make it out alive? Does the government facility have the cure?

The Street is a fully immersive scare, horror & action event; the more you immerse yourself into the event the more fun you will get out of it. These types of events originated in the US, and are now thrilling visitors across the UK, especially during the Halloween period.

This Halloween season you have a choice of 3 immersive activities:

See if you can escape the infection by walking the ‘The Street’, attack the infected and learn how to become a warrior in Battle Archery, test your senses walking through our rope maze all for JUST £10 at HMP Shepton Mallet!

If you’re not brave enough to join any of our immersive activities then why not visit our onsite fully licenced bar, what’s more, that’s FREE entry!!

Our gates open at 7pm and lockdown is 11pm. This 12+ event, will be an event to remember, if you’re 12-16 years of age then make sure you bring an appropriate adult over 18.

If you’re brave enough to enter The Street, book your tickets now.

The Street, at Shepton Mallet Prison, is running on: 25th, 26th and 27th October.

Tickets: £10
plus £1.25 booking fee

COMPERE; FANTASTIC MS FANNY
CONTORTION; RAMONA REINVALL
BURLESQUE; KITTY KANE & OH CAROLINE
PLUS MORE TBC

Feast your eyes on the spectacles that will be gracing the stage at Wookey Hole’s Halloween Spooktacular.

An alternative cabaret that is sure to make you screech with laughter, cry and turn your head in disgust! Featuring international circus and burlesque performers that will twist you in knots with their bendy skills, walking on glass, flying high and the gory bits in-between.

Hosted by the Fantastic Ms Fanny, trained in improvisation and clowning, with a side in baking cakes, Ms Fanny’s slightly skewed interpretation of the world around her never fails to bring a smile to audiences…closely followed by some faint nausea…

Ticket only option includes:
