Taunton High Street Beacon Trail

SWT is also proud to announce the Jubilee Beacon Trail in Taunton encouraging people to explore the town and spot seven characters from Buckingham Palace.

As you locate each of the characters displayed on window stickers by businesses around the town, you can scan a unique QR code to engage with the story and learn about a different decade in Her Majesty’s 70 year reign.

The trail runs until 12 June and information can be obtained from the Taunton Visitor Centre.

Don't miss the Taunton Corgi Trail!

Go Create will be hosting a Taunton Corgi Trail which is due to be launched by the Mayor of Taunton on Saturday 4 June at 11am and is being described as a "fun nod" to Her Majesty's favourite dog breed. GoCreate is a charity and umbrella organisation for Somerset West and Taunton, whose aim is to promote the arts.

They partner with artists, local authorities, businesses, employers and arts organisations to transform Taunton’s arts offer.

Further information on the trail can be found on Facebook.
