BBC1 Victorian event in SHEPTON MALLET
Not sure what to do this Sunday 04th July 2010?
If you live in Somerset or in a neighbouring county, you may be interested in this event: BBC ONE - SPECIAL MARKET DAY, MARKET PLACE, SHEPTON MALLET. It will run from 9am to 2pm. Over the past few weeks Shepton Mallet has had some of the shop fronts and interiors transformed in to Victorian shops. Filming will be taking place for a new TV series. I went to Shepton Mallet on Tuesday and it was fascinating to watch them at work. I can't wait to see what it will all look like on Sunday. Shops and stalls will be open including Nostalgia at No1 and Number 21.

Scenes around Shepton Mallet
You may wish to round off the day with a trip on the East Somerset Railway's steam train. It is in Cranmore just 3 or 4 miles away from Shepton Mallet. There is also a good pub there called The Strode Arms, although booking in advance is usually advisable.
