Simonsbath Festival
Celebrating Music, Art, Talks & Walks on Exmoor from May Day to Midsummer
6 May to 21 June 2019


Welcome to Simonsbath Festival 2019

Welcome to the Simonsbath Festival 2019.  You will find a wealth of talent to delight. It begins with the colourful May Day celebration on the green in Exford.

The main venue for our variety of concerts and talks is in Simonsbath, the intimate St. Luke’s church with its excellent acoustics. There are also a series of guided walks in conjunction with the Exmoor Society.  These take place over a wide area of Exmoor.


Our audiences come from Exmoor, as well as from beyond and far, as the Simonsbath Festival’s reputation continues to blossom and flower.

All Festival profits go to support the Simonsbath Festival ‘Music in Schools' program.  Led by Paul Wilson, from the Folk and Community Arts organisation Wren Music, "Music in Schools' is all-important for the four Exmoor schools at a time when Arts are being axed from the cirriculum.  The whole Simonsbath Festival culminates in a collective Midsummer performance by the children at Wheddon Cross.  

Please join us throughout the 2019 Simonsbath Festival.
