Culture and creativity make life worth living, shape who we are and keep our district prosperous.
Our district has cultural, heritage and natural assets as well as energy, creativity and community spirit in abundance. We have legions of artists and creatives, designers, artisans, street fairs, wassails, carnivals and festivals. We have cultural and creative hubs not just in our county town Taunton (with its acclaimed theatre, museum, arts -led University Centre and so much more) but also in Minehead, Dunster, Porlock and Watchet on our beautiful coast, Dulverton, Wellington, Wiveliscombe and the 10 Parishes.
Somerset West and Taunton has the energy and leadership to make a vibrant creative and cultural offer to meet our ambitions. Our Corporate Strategy 2019-23 firmly states this intention to ”support the enhancement of arts and culture provision within the District”.
