Are you caught in a Winter trap? It’s cold, wet and even depressing – there is an alternative that beckons! What if you could go somewhere that comes alive in winter and celebrates all it’s cosy goodness?

Well Bridgetown is the place for a unique winter experience.

June through to August are the months Bridgetown locals, community groups and businesses go all out to provide loads of fun activities and warming treats through the Fridgetown Festival. All the events are listed on our Events page here or you can hop on to Fridgetown’s own website to check out all that’s on offer.

The town bedecks itself in blue lights giving it a sense of magic

There are mouth-watering workshops to make the most luscious soups and hearty winter dishes, stunning Christmas in Winter dinners in a to-die-for barn setting. You can visit a local writer’s wonderful home, sit by the fire and learn the intricacies of memoire writing, indulge in a blindfolded dinner, enjoy loads of live music events, there’s a stunning Winter Night Market, a Murder Mystery dinner and the famous Bridgetown Ghost Walks. And there’s plenty more!

The incredible barn at Ford House comes alive with Christmas in July

At night you can stay in one of the many accommodation places – some with open fires to snuggle up in front of.

During the day you can walk down the main street admiring the unique little shops that offer that different gift or treat. Drop into any of the cafes or eateries to experience the individuality and warmth that each offer you.

Don’t forget the Bridgetown River Park Markets on every fortnight and winter is a wonderful bracing time to try out one of many nature trail walks in the area.

With the beautiful early morning mists, hot chocolates on a crisp winter’s day, luscious red wine by the fire at night and the best winter comfort food on offer, ‘FRIDGETOWN’ is full of warmth, entertainment and just sheer delights.

Pack that beanie and some toasty warm socks, snuggle into that oversized jumper and come on down. We’ll warm the cockles of your heart 😊
