Bringing People Together

Community Programmes

Imagine listening to a free jazz concert on a sunny Sunday afternoon on Castle Green in Taunton, or rockin away on a Saturday evening to great blues rock band. The local bars are serving cold beer and families with their picnics meet friends and feel a sense of community spirit.

Castle Green was designed for such events but since its conception it is yet to be fully maximised. However, it is not the space that makes great culture but what goes on in it, but if we want things to happen in this amazing space then we must have the tools and resources to put things on.

These tools and resources include things like small stage equipment, PA systems, lighting, fencing, security etc. and then these need to be stored and transported. But once obtained the community and Taunton will be able to put on regular events with ease while sharing resources.

It doesn’t stop there. There are also great green spaces in our communities too such as Priorswood, Galmington, Holway and others. We want to bring these communities together by using arts and culture and the resources mentioned above. This will enable us to deliver a mini-music festival to each area and build on these annually.

We need to raise funds for purchasing equipment so local arts and culture providers can deliver great events to Taunton communities and the town centre.
