There's the Acorn Folk Club in Minehead at The Old Ship Aground on the first Saturday of the month.

West Somerset Folk Festival is in Carhampton (right on the doorstep) on 10-12 July.
The Dame & I will be running the Friday night sing.

Don't forget the steam trains.

And the café at Blue Anchor is pretty good too.

The Bear Inn at Wiveliscombe has been known to have singarounds. I don't know if they are still going but you could contact them.
