The village has a church, village hall, post box and public phone box as well as a popular 17th Century pub called The White Hart.
Littleton Brick Pits are an artificial lagoon, once the site of clay extraction for brick making, where the Avon Wildlife Trust have reintroduced reedbeds close to the Severn Estuary, as a feeding and resting place for migrating birds.
Since 2004, Littleton has hosted a small music festival for local bands in the summer of each year. The festival has traditionally taken place on the river bank and is always a popular event for people of all ages. In the past the festival has often started around mid-afternoon and has finished around midnight. The stage has traditionally been a large trailer, which in the past has just been sufficient enough for a 5-piece band including the space-consuming drum kit, keyboard and amplifiers. There are also tents for food, a bar, children's games and confectionery and first aid as well as an outdoor 9-pin bowling alley. There is often a raffle and magic show half way through the day.
The idea came from Jon Swift, singer and guitarist from village band, This 'n' That. At that time the village church roof needed to be replaced and so all the profits from the festival were given to the church roof fund. The festival was named Littleton Annual Festival of Fun (LAFF), although a second festival was not planned at that time.
The event was such a success, that the organisers planned a second festival for 2005. This time, Jane Gulliver took over from Jon as lead organiser and the profits were divided so that some money went into the next festival and the rest was put into a fund to buy a marquee for future village events. The festival was renamed Littleton Festival.
Littleton Festival is now officially in its fourth year. The organisation of the event for 2007 has been resumed by Jon Swift, joined by Debbie Parsons. The new organisers have decided not to run the festival in its traditional form and are 'down-sizing' for a year, instead holding a night of Music in the Marquee. This decision was taken due to problems financing a full scale festival.
This 'n' That are a band traditionally for Littleton musicians. The band was started in early 2002 by Jon Swift and originally had 5 members (a keyboard, two electric guitars, one acoustic guitar, one drum-kit). In the past they have described themselves as Littleton's musically-challenged band. The band play a variety of different styles of music ranging from old favourites to modern-day rock as well as composing a few of their own tracks.
This 'n' That have performed annually in village events and hosted the 2004 Littleton Festival (then the Littleton Annual Festival of Fun).
