Elderberry Fair for the over 50s comes to Wellsprings Leisure Centre, Taunton on Sunday 4 March

They say life begins at 50 and if you’re from Somerset that’s certainly the case!

To celebrate, a new and unique fair will be coming to Taunton in March with something for everyone to enjoy. Elderberry Fair – Somerset’s premier over 50s show – will take place on Sunday 4 March at Wellsprings Leisure Centre with a variety of stalls.

From beauty and crafts, to gin and wine tasting, health, cars, travel and much more, find all you need under one roof.

There will also be a range of practical services aimed at making life a little easier and in some cases a lot more fun, including community groups, socialising opportunities and wealth management companies.

You’ll also be able to relax with a delicious cream tea and find out all about fun things going on around Somerset.

A full entertainment programme has also been planned for the day with singers, dancers and some surprises too.

Plus the first 1,000 visitors will receive a goody bag with discount vouchers, so don’t miss out!

Elderberry Fair is the brainchild of two Somerset business women Trish Caller and Fran Carey, who have worked hard to bring local suppliers and services to the over 50s across the county.

Fran says – “I have wanted to host an Over 50s show in Somerset for a number of years, as I feel that this is such an important demographic which is so often overlooked. It has been great working with Trish to make this a reality and I am excited to bring together so many valued experts and Somerset talent under one roof for a fun packed and informative day.”

Trish says – “As I am over 50 now I have become aware of all the advice and tips for getting a little older…but I feel being over 50 isn’t all that bad! This event is more of a celebration of being over 50! Lots of fun is on offer on the day and always available via lots of Elderberry Events we will be organising in the future too! Fashion Shows, Travel Shows, Social Group opportunities! – See you there!”

Elderberry Fair would like to thank Monkton Elm Garden Centre, McCarthy and Stone, Mercedes Benz, Boots, Age UK Somerset and Taunton Deane Borough Council for their support.

The fair takes place on Sunday 4 March between 10am and 4pm, entry is £2. For more information, visit www.elderberryfair.co.uk and remember, life begins at Elderberry Fair!
