2021 Culture Declares Emergency. We are working with the Somerset Wildlife Trust, Wild Beach, Somerset Brilliant Coast projects producing artworks with school children using recycled waste, highlighting rubbish, waste and plastic pollution in our seas, waterways, rivers and oceans.  Children from Bridgwater schools made art works and created a fabulous trail around the town. We invite you to make a pledge for Wildlife, Climate and Ecological Emergency.


At all our events we ask you to please practice safe social distancing and encourage the use of face masks.  Over the summer months we operated a Covid safe outdoor programme to keep artists, staff, audiences and communities safe. The events were organised to comply with the current Covid restrictions in place. Our wardens did a fantastic job!
