What’s the best thing about Somerset? Cider or Cheddar cheese? The Wurzels or Wells Cathedral? You decide.

Somerset Day was launched in 2015 with the mission to make it a day set aside to celebrate all that’s great about our county.

Somerset Day is organised by Passion for Somerset, a not for profit community interest company, with help from sponsors and volunteer supporters throughout the county.

It’s Chairman, Nigel Muers-Raby, said: “This year is a watershed for celebrating the many wonderful things about Somerset. With the support of some of our County’s leading businesses and Somerset County Council, North Somerset Council and Bath & North East Somerset we have been able to spread the message far and wide, with the result that at the last count around 100 different events are thought to be taking place over the Somerset Day weekend.”

To mark Somerset Day on Friday 11 May, Somerset County Council has organised the World Cup of Somerset – a fun contest to identify the best thing about Somerset.

Entries were nominated by the public. A shortlist of 32 entries were drawn at random into 8 groups of 4 entries.

We’re delighted that Nunney Castle has made the shortlist, BUT… we’re up against the hugely popular band the Wurzels in our group. Tough, tough, tough.

Voting in the World Cup of Somerset 2018 opens at 7.30am on Tuesday 8 May on the Somerset County Council Twitter account. The final takes places on 11 May.

Please vote and support Nunney Castle! Thank you.
