Dunster by Candlelight

Dunster by Candlelight 2016 is the 30th year of this special event paid for by the Traders of Dunster in aid of St Margaret's Hospice here in Somerset.

Candlelight takes place every year on the first Friday and Saturday of December when this remarkably preserved medieval village turns its back on the present and lights its streets with lanterns and where possible candles in the houses

There is no charge to get into Dunster by Candlelight, the only cost is the bus fare from one of the stops in Minehead, Willtion, Watchet, Porlock and Wheddon Cross. The bus fare helps towards the cost of the buses, Candlelight and a contribution towards the St Margaret's Hospice.

When you arrive in Dunster it is 'possible' to walk from one end of the village to the other enjoying all the entertainment without any extra cost. Of course we hope you will buy something in the shops or put some pennies in the collecting tins but, that is up to you.
