What to Do in Weston-Super-Mare This Autumn

We don’t know about you but autumn is one of our favourite times of year here at Skidmores, there is something very magical about the changes in the colours of the leaves set against crisp blue skies and cool breezes. The shorter days and colder weather doesn’t mean that it’s time to stay inside, however, as autumn brings with it a whole host of things to do in Weston-super-Mare! 

13th – 15th October - HydroGarden Weston Beach Race

Make the most of the beach before the really cold weather sets in by paying a visit to one of the biggest events in Weston-super-Mare. A huge event on the BMX calendar, the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race is designed for the whole family to enjoy, featuring action-packed races, professional riders from all over the world, and a world-renowned sand track which is easily one of the toughest of its kind.


27th – 28th October - Night at the Museum

For an evening of magic, head to the Weston Museum to explore the galleries and exhibitions after dark. Help the museum staff to solve a mystery and be astounded as historical figures from the museum come to life.


28th October – The Addams Family at The Quarry

Halloween is around the corner and if you are looking for a different way to celebrate the spooky season, head to the Old Town Quarry on Queens Road to catch an outside viewing of The Addams Family. Pack your cosiest blankets, cushions, ponchos, and sleeping bags and cuddle up to watch this family classic.


11th November – Weston-super-Mare Carnival

The last Somerset Carnival of the season, the Weston-super-Mare Carnival seems to get better with every year. Featuring more than 140 illuminated floats, the procession will slowly make its way through the town centre to the sounds of marching bands and huge PA systems. The carnival leaves Locking Road car park at 7:15 pm and heads along Alexandra Parade, Alfred Street, the Boulevard, Waterloo Street, South Parade, the seafront, and Carlton Stress before returning to the car park again. Arrive early to miss the crowds!


3rd November – 7th January – Icescape @ The Tropicana

New to the Tropicana venue this autumn is the largest covered ice rink in the UK, with a capacity of over 500 people per session. Get your skates on and glide over the smooth ice, created using rapid freeze, real ice technology. There’s even the chance to meet Santa in his grotto!
