The Somerset Day Community Interest Company

We are the not-for-profit Community Interest Company behind Somerset Day, our birthday, and Shop Somerset, which connects local independent businesses to consumers and communities.

We champion this most beautiful and bountiful of British counties by supporting communities and businesses throughout the year.

We have the single aim of celebrating Somerset and all it has to offer and shouting this from the treetops.
