Blackdown Events Open Day and Fete

Blackdown Events would like to cordially invite you to their launch event.

On bank holiday Monday, 5th May we are hosting our first Open Day & Fete at our beautiful Haymeadow. Based in a rural location in the Blackdown Hills AONB, the meadow is the perfect location for your wedding.

We provide you with exclusive hire of the meadow, a 40’x60’ traditional poled marquee with lining, flooring, lighting, tables and chairs, a catering marquee and luxury toilets and then it is up to you to select the suppliers you would like to work with and as an added bonus we don’t charge any corkage. The venue is run by Gemma Sparks who can help you source suppliers or even plan your whole day if you would like her to!

We allow you to come in and set up the marquee as you wish the day before and you and your guests are welcome to camp overnight on the night of your wedding. Why not embrace the rustic charm and make use of the hay bales we have on site as seating or have a camp fire to toast marshmallows on late into the night, all of this is possible at The Haymeadow. So why not come along to our open day and see what we have to offer. We will have lots of local suppliers for you to meet, from make-up artists to stationerers all from Somerset and Devon, demonstrations to inspire, live music and lots of fete games to enjoy.

After joining in with the games why not enjoy a drink at the bar or have some food, there will be cream teas, some traditional French cuisine, macaroons and even ice cream! This is not going to be your standard wedding fair why not come along and enjoy a day in the Great British Countryside having some fun! The meadow is within easy reach of Taunton, Honiton and Exeter, being only 8 miles from the M5 and 5 from the A303 and there is a main road within 1/2 mile of the meadow, so when you get close look out for our signs to bring you to the site.

If you cant make the open day please don’t despair, Gemma would be delighted to show you round at a time to suit.
