St George’s Big Weekend

Virtual Camp | April 2021

St George’s Big Weekend 2021

Somerset County are pleased to announce ST.GEORGE’S BIG WEEKEND. Following the success of Virtual Camp last May, and by popular demand, we are thrilled to be bringing you another county camping at home experience.

Welcome to Somerset’s County Virtual Camp 2021. We may still have to camp at home … but at least we can all do it together!

Everyone is welcome to participate – there are no age or geographical restrictions. You just have to follow the current government guidelines in for your local area, mostly by remaining at home or local and staying safe whilst joining in the fun.

First of all – go and pitch a tent in your garden, build a den out of blankets or boxes, make a shelter, or (if you are feeling brave) put up your hammock! Now you are all set and can start to enjoy the activities on offer in our EIGHT ZONES, which will be open all day and all night!

Friday 23rd April at 7pm – Join the County Commissioner live for the OFFICIAL OPENING, including St George’s Day Promise Renewals on

Saturday 24th April 10am – Live Magic Show with Ozzy D on

Saturday 24th April 8pm – Live Camp Fire with Rob Cash and guests on

Saturday 24th April 4pm – Join us live for news and updates, to find out what has been going on so far!

Sunday 25th April 10am – Live Magic Show with Ozzy D on

Sunday 25th April 2pm – We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Closing Ceremony live on
