Somerset Day will be celebrated by Thatchers Cider tonight (Thursday) with a special party at The Railway Inn in Sandford.

The pub will host a cheese and wine tasting event after a performance from the Mendip Morris Men at 7pm.

Somerset Day was created in 2015, with May 11 selected as the day to celebrate the county as it coincides with the date Alfred the Great, King of Wessex led Somerset to victory over the invading Viking army in 878.
