A quirky local event established in 1984. Worm charming, dog show, beer festival, stalls and more. 

You can turn up and register on the day, just bring your team of three (a charmerer, a pickerer and a counterer) and £5 to Worm HQ near The George Inn before the midday deadline. 

There will be separate categories for Under 11s and Adults. 

The Blackawton International Festival of Wormcharming is a day of fun, fancy dress and fundraising culminating with the infamous Worm Charming auction, which will be at the George Inn and last year raised over £5,000 for local charities including the Devon Air Ambulance.
