March 18 – In line with the Government’s advice on gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic, it is clear that this year’s IMEx must be cancelled. Work continues to ensure for a successful event in 2021 ..Meanwhile, we wish everyone to keep safe..and be sure to keep washing your hands!
May 13, Flags – Although this year’s Ilminster Midsummer Experience will have to remain cancelled for all the obvious reasons we are already planning for IMEx to return in 2021 bigger and better than ever – big news is that meanwhile we will be able to put up in town as many Flags as possible at the end of this month of May. The Flags will be up for a few weeks, on many of the business premises in Ilminster’s town centre..and very cheering it will be to see them !
May 18, V-IMEx – Exciting plans are in hand to have a Virtual IMEx here on on our website, to maintain the Spirit of IMEx ! Videos and photos of many of the events and experiences from previous years will feature. If you have a video from some part of IMEx and would like to see it as part of V-IMEx get in touch, we would love to include it. Virtual may not be the same as Normal, but it will bring a smile to our faces..!

The Ilminster Midsummer Experience (IMEx) has been running since 2008 and is now firmly established as a major tourist attraction, drawing people from far and wide to our historic town. There are dozens of events covering the arts, music, exhibitions, fun shows, markets and much, much more.
Many visitors come to see the famous Ilminster Flag Festival that runs for 4 weeks from the end of May. This colourful event celebrates many of the town’s businesses and organisations with over 100 flags throughout the town including stunning banners designed by Patrick Reytiens and John Reytiens in the Minster grounds.
