About us

The Shepton Mallet Snowdrop Festival Project is community led project to celebrate the life and works of James Allen; ‘The Snowdrop King’, who lived and worked in Shepton Mallet.

This exciting project aims to enhance the wellbeing and economy of Shepton Mallet by planting hundreds of thousands of snowdrops around the town and holding an annual Festival to celebrate the snowdrops in February each year. The Festival encourages visitors to the town and is a showcase for local talent and community spirit. Our ultimate aim is for Shepton Mallet to be known affectionately, across the world, as the Snowdrop Town.
