What's on in Pembrokeshire: November
The time has come to embrace the winter months, and when staying in Pembrokeshire this is easily done due to the exciting events planned for November. From exciting Bonfire Night celebrations to festive fairs to get you into the Christmas spirit, booking a last minute self-catering cottage in Pembrokeshire this winter has never been so appealing.
St Florence Bonfire and Firework Display
Celebrate the 5th of November in style at the biggest bonfire in Pembrokeshire. Renowned for a spectacular show, this year’s theme features the ‘Houses of Parliament Gunpowder Plot’ and includes a replica of the building, which will be set alight at 7pm. The best dressed Guy Fawkes decided in an earlier competition will take centre stage, as the Houses of Parliament are engulfed in flames. An impressive fireworks display will then follow, which can be watched with a mulled wine in hand from the licensed bar. Entry costs just £2.50 per adult and £1 per child.
Tenby Blues Festival
Winning the Best Event 2014 Award at the recent Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards, the Tenby Blues Festival promises a jam-packed schedule of fantastic musical events in a variety of venues across the town. Since the first festival in 2006, the line-up has got bigger year upon year, and was put into place to liven up the coastal town for the remaining tourists staying in Tenby accommodation. The festival runs from 14th-16th November, with more than six blues performances taking place over the course of the weekend.
Winter Frost Fair at Scolton Manor
Those looking to treat themselves to some retail therapy with a wintery theme, can do so at this festive fair set in over 60 acres of park and woodland. Visitors can peruse the large variety of stalls selling crafts and gifts in the hunt for the perfect Christmas presents and souvenirs. Hot drinks and bites to eat will also be served in the tea rooms, where those that have shopped till they’ve dropped can take a minute to relax. Food stalls will display an array of tasty treats too, which are perfect for taking back to your luxury holiday cottage, while warming up in front of the fire.
